Keli Mondello

Keli Mondello is Co-Founder of LiFT and Chairman of our Board. She is a graduate of Florida State University with a degree in Speech Language Pathology and Audiology. Her career in the field of Speech and Language spans multiple settings, yet Keli found her passion working with children in the school system. Here she concentrated on language development, pragmatics and social skills in both the traditional model and the inclusive model. Keli’s philanthropic and entrepreneurial spirit launched her career in the non-profit sector in 2008 where she focused her efforts on children and education. She currently is a Guardian Ad Litem, sits on the Advisory council for the Florida Center for Inclusive Communities, serves on the Executive committee for Women in Leadership and Philanthropy and donates her time to various other philanthropic organizations. Keli and her husband Mark are passionate about giving back to our community. They have three children (one of whom graduated from LiFT Academy in 2014) two dogs, and enjoy anything outdoors, especially near the water.
