Kelli Menaker


Kelli is from Tacoma, Washington and left home in 2003 to serve in the United States Air Force. She worked in POL (petroleum, oils and lubricants) for 7 years having assignments all over the world. Her enlistment came to an end when she was a Staff Sergeant. She then went on to pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education where she graduated summa cum laude. She also became a mother to 3 children as a military spouse and had a small business as a wedding photographer. She has always enjoyed learning, teaching and mentoring whether in school, business, or life.

Kelli attended Warrior PATHH in 2023 where she learned how to find passion, purpose, and meaning in her life. This ignited a desire to serve others in the Veteran and First Responder community. She believes that teaching the practices of Warrior PATHH, and sharing her testimony are powerful ways to serve those who can use it to learn to struggle well.

When Kelli is at home she is dedicated to her husband Gary, their 3 children, and 3 dogs.
