Kelli helps LMI's customers plan and execute strategies to reduce environmental impact and improve mission resilience to climate change. In addition to championing a mission-centric approach to climate adaptation and mitigation, Kelli leads sustainable design, operation, and management of federal infrastructure and strategies to improve energy and water efficiency.
Kelli coordinates LMI’s exclusive partnership with The Climate Service (TCS), which provides best-in-class analytics to help organizations understand their fiscal exposure to the physical and transition risks of climate change. Under Kelli’s guidance, LMI and TCS analyzed the climate risks facing Department of Defense installations worldwide that support the F-35 weapon system. She also helped the General Services Administration (GSA) understand the impact of office buildings on indicators of human health and well-being such as stress, activity, and sleep quality by using real-time ambient and wearable sensors. The research supported GSA’s development of operational, health-enhancing strategies as part of a comprehensive approach to sustainable buildings.
Kelli holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies and biology from Washington College and a master’s degree in environmental science from American University. She is a certified project management professional, an ISO 55000 certified professional, and credentialed as a LEED Green Associate by the U.S. Green Building Council.
