After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Dietetics, she began her career with a residency and position in Washington DC at George Washington University Hospital. Since returning to Colorado, she founded Apex Nutrition, LLC, a local and online private practice specializing in endurance sports nutrition, disease prevention, and wellness. Kelli has counseled athletes across the country, from amateur to professional, helping them improve their health and athletic performance through daily healthy eating and intentional eating for training. She has studied and worked in a variety of nutrition areas and is accredited by the Commission on Dietetic Registration. Outside of work, Kelli loves living with her husband in Crested Butte, Colorado where she spends her free time backcountry skiing, mountaineering, and participating in endurance mountain bike events. During the summer of 2005, she placed first in a 100K Mountain Bike Race in Durango, Colorado. She has also set her sights on climbing the 54 summits of all of Colorado's 14,000 foot peaks (52 climbed including 7 snow climb/ski descents as of October 2006 - the completion of this project has been delayed with the birth of her 1st child in June 2007!).
