Kelli at Cabrillo Graduation 2017

M.S., Stanford; B.S., Cal Poly Pomona; A.S., Cabrillo
With Cabrillo College since 2010

I consider myself extremely fortunate to work, play and live in Santa Cruz County.

My Story...
I spent my youth growing up in Watsonville, attending local public schools, playing soccer, practicing the trombone and tending to our family collection of reptiles. I graduated Aptos High School in 1996 and began my first full-time college semester at Cabrillo! For the next six years I learned to balance my work life, my education as an Engineering student, my love for soccer and my family. I graduated with a B.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Cal Poly Pomona, then worked for a national Environmental/Geotechnical firm in Southern California for one year before moving back home to Watsonville, where the environment was a little more green and a little less 'concrete'.

After commuting from Watsonville to Milpitas (>50 miles - one way!) for over a year, I decided to go back to school. In 2006 I received a M.S. degree in Environmental Engineering and Science from Stanford and I vowed that my next job would be closer to home! After graduating I was hired as an Associate Engineer for a small local Civil/Environmental firm in Santa Cruz, where I enjoyed cycling to work everyday and increasing my professional engineering skills with young, like minded engineers; one of which I ended up marrying and having two children with!

After nine years at Cabrillo, I move forward each day energized by the students I interact with, the faculty and staff I learn from, and my family at home.
