About Kelli

I am a passionate maternal health advocate, focused on eliminating health disparities and the disproportionate African American and Latina infant and maternal mortality rates. I created the Speak Life Doula program and co-authored the Safety PIN grant that garnered multiple million dollar awards from the Indiana State Department of Health. I am a Certified Lactation Specialist, Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator, Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educator, Certified Perinatal Educator, Certified Birth Doula with DONA International, and Postpartum Doula of over 13 years. I am a member of: DONA International, Breastfeeding USA, International Childbirth Education Association, the United States Lactation Association, The Saint Joseph County Fetal Infant Mortality Review team, the Indiana State Department of Health Maternal Mortality Review Committee and chair of the Birth Equity Subcommittee and Indiana Ambassador for DONA International. I established the 32nd Milk Bank Depot in Indiana.  I authored the Birthing Bill of Rights to champion the rights of mothers during the childbearing year.

I testified at the Indiana Statehouse in House and Senate chambers in support of Senate Bill 416, for Medicaid reimbursement of doulas which passed, and was signed by Governor Eric Holcomb.
