Kelli draws on her prior experience as Billing Coordinator for TheraCare of NewYork, as well as former Research Associate with an online ticketing and travel based tech start-up. At TheraCare she was responsible for monitoring compliance, maintaining databases, keeping abreast of changes in billing/reimbursement procedures, and assessing and resolving billing conflicts as needed before approving payment. She tracked, processed, and managed the weekly submission of billing and reimbursement materials submitted by therapists, Service Coordinators, and provider agencies servicing hundreds of cases throughout the entire Bronx and Manhattan area. The added experience of having previously worked in a blended tech and start-up work space further developed her familiarity conducting qualitative and quantitative analyses, managing multiple workstreams under varying timelines, and maintaining a strong attention to detail.
Prior to joining Capalino+Company, Kelli worked with the City Energy Project (CEP) initiative jointly led by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the Institute for Market Innovation (IMT), to facilitate adoption of best practices and commercial & multi-family building energy benchmarking and disclosure policies within major U.S. cities. The initiative has garnered national attention as well as support from esteemed project sponsors and has seen the successful passage of improved building energy reporting and transparency ordinances and projects within Boston, Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Orlando, Salt Lake City and growing. Providing programmatic and operational support to a cross-functional team, Kelli developed educational and promotional materials to foster both public and private support among tenants, building owners, and government officials as well as open the communication channels between funders and stakeholder groups. She also assisted in the development of a longevity planning strategy to help the CEP team strategically identify and recruit sources of local funding and foster stakeholder partnerships in each participating city that would grow the CEP project network.
Proudly hailing from The Sunshine State, Kelli holds a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from Wellesley College and received her Masters of Science degree in Sustainability Management from Columbia University.
