Personal

Kelli was born and raised in Rapid City (Go Cobblers!) and loves to see how much Rapid City has grown. She loved exploring the Black Hills and the outdoors with her dad and two brothers. Those childhood experiences encouraged her to join the firm’s trap shooting team and get more involved in hunting and archery. She jokingly attributes these qualities to finding her husband. Kelli and her husband have two hunting dogs.

As you are out “hunting” for assistance with accounting operations, look no further than KT!
