Kelli was first drawn to astrology during her childhood in Sydney, Australia. As early as eight years of age, she began recording birth dates and sun signs for anyone willing to share.
Kelli's formal astrological studies began at the College of Humanistic Astrology. This led to her professional accreditation with multiple organizations including:
- CA NCGR IV (National Council for Geocosmic Research)
- PMAFA (Professional Member of the American Federation of Astrologers)
- ISAR C.A.P. (International Society for Astrological Research)
- FAA (Federation of Australian Astrologers).
