For Kelli, flying came as a bit of an afterthought. Throughout high school she wanted to join the Air Force as a pilot but believed it was not possible due to a knee injury with a permanent screw. While living in Germany and traveling Europe, Kelli fell in love with flying, always peeking into the cockpit to see the controls and the pilots. With inspiration from her aunt in aviation, Kelli turned her dreams into reality and discovered just how much she truly loves flying. Drawing on her background as a ski/snowboard instructor, she became a flight instructor greatly enjoys the feeling of satisfaction once a student achieves one of their dreams or goals.
