Kelli spends the majority of the year as a river guide, splitting her time between the Middle Fork & Main Salmon with us at CANYONS, the Colorado River in Grand Canyon with AZRA, and in China with Last Descents River Expeditions, working to protect the rivers of Western China. In 2015, Kelli played an integral part in bringing a dozen-or-so young (unbelievably young!) Chinese kayakers and their parents on one of our Main Salmon trips, and a wonderful, well-produced short film resulted. Check it out here! She recently started her own outdoor-wear company, FunHoggin’ Fleecewear, sewing fantastically fun and festive fleece board shorts and skirts. Kelli’s authentic smile is like none other and the word “contagious” barely gives props to her amazing energy.
