Stacey: Kelli, welcome to the show.

Kelli: Thank you. I am so honored to be here, Stacey, and it’s so good to talk with you and just have a conversation. I mean, we’re not by each other.

Stacey: I know, right? You’re in Missouri. What’s the weather like today? Is it snowing, in May?

Kelli: It is rainy and cloudy.

Stacey: Is it really? I gotta tell you – it’s funny, because I had never been to St. Louis until we started doing NLP there and everything – and when you guys told me you don’t like the weather, give it 5 minutes – I really thought you guys were full of crap, until I didn’t like the weather and I gave it 5 minutes and it changed.

So what actually took you out to St. Louis, because I know you were out in California – that’s where you got your degree for teaching, yes?

Kelli: Kind of. So I grew up in Missouri. I grew up in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Then, I ended up in California to get my Master’s degree in dance education. So I have a music theater degree and a dance education, neither of which I am using, other than my front porch when I was doing Friday porch dances. And then we lived in Colorado for 7 years, and after we had kids it was time to move back to be closer to the family.
