Kelli started working in the dental industry in 2005 where she worked as a dental assistant and immediately found a passion for helping people in this field. Kelli pursued her dental career for 5 years and during that time she continued to further her education by taking various dental courses. This allowed her to work as a receptionist, in the dental lab, and handle treatment consultations. Kelli's love for dentistry brought her to meet the love of her life, Dr. Dan Rootes. Together, Kelli and Dan decided to make the move to the beautiful Okanagan where they both travelled as kids. Kelli always loved working with her children patients and after moving to Kelowna took a career change as a Teacher for School District 23. Training as a teacher has allowed Kelli to explore many avenues of social media, which has been her inspiration with handling all of Lifestyle's social media accounts. Kelli's background in the dental field combined with her life experience and education has helped her to assist Dr. Rootes in managing Lifestyle Dentistry.
When Kelli is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family whether that is outdoors on a new adventure or indoors snuggled up for a movie night. She also enjoys visiting with friends, working out, playing soccer, golfing, trail running, snowboarding, and any do it yourself project she can get her hands on!
