Kelli is a native of Indiana and moved to Tennessee in 2001. After working for several years in the front office of medical practices, she decided to go back to school and get her degree in dental hygiene. She graduated valedictorian of her class in 2013 and received honors for professionalism and top clinician.
“There is nothing better than a beautiful smile,” says Kelli. Her passion for educating patients, making them feel comfortable, and seeing the improvement in oral health when patients return is what motivates her as a hygienist.
Kelli grew up with her niece, who has special needs and feels a special connection to the IDD population. “I am honored to be a part of the Triax Team. We make a difference in people’s lives and health, and offer services to people who may not have anywhere else to go for dental needs”.
Other interests Kelli has include spending time with her family, whether it be game nights, camping or backyard cookouts. She and her husband love to go to concerts, trying new restaurants, and traveling. She enjoys fixing up her house and repurposing old furniture. Kelli also sings in a female trio group and occasionally performs on songwriters nights and charity events.
