At Kelli’s we consider ourselves a small “family” working together to earn your business every day. Most of my time is spent behind the scenes making sure we fulfill our promises to you. It’s imperative that we continue to invest and improve as a company so that we can continue to offer quality goods and services and ultimately be of value as a vendor. We constantly explore and implement new opportunities in hopes of exceeding your expectations. I always welcome customer feedback, which helps move us in the right direction. From day one, Kelli’s was built on customer service and we intend to keep it that way.

On a personal note, I was born and raised in Dallas. I grew up in the hospital gift shop market. When I am not immersing myself at Kelli’s, I bleed Orange for the Texas Longhorns!
