As a career educator, Kelli knows firsthand the importance of education and mentorship. Kelli has served students both in the classroom and as an administrator over her 20 year career both in California and in New York. Kelli was the Director for Admissions for Mt Sinai Medical School in New York City where she managed a staff that was responsible for the restructuring of the medical admissions process and review of over 6,000 applications annually. Additionally Kelli was responsible for managing over 700 interviews annually with prospective medical students and assuring incoming students were oriented appropriately to the school. She also supported the medical student’s LGBT group through her group involvement and “out” status as a senior staff member of the institution.
