Kelli Galle, MSN, APRN, FNP-C, is originally from New Orleans, Louisiana. She began her nursing career as a new graduate in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). After working several years in the high acuity setting, she advanced her career to pursue an advanced practice degree as Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP).  

Kelli maintains a clinical practice with the hospice population as a nurse practitioner. As a hospice provider, Kelli developed her love for teaching by educating others about end-of-life concepts, disease progression, and symptom management which provided a natural transition into the academic setting.
