Kelly D. Heil
I grew up always wanting to help people and cheer them on. My early days were spent cheering for basketball, then later football. I saw the need for an effective cheerleader and how it could change the energy in the gym or the crowd at a football game. I am always in my “sweet spot” when cheering on others…happy times or sad times. Here at Arise I am the VP of Client Relations. Some say I am the color in the office but I am here to make you feel right at home. Our home is your home!
After spending close to three years at the University of Central Missouri, I finished my BA in Education/Special Education at Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Missouri. I am also a certified Christian Life Coach from The Institute for Life Coach Training.
I love spending time with my family and friends especially in the beauty of nature. My greatest title now is Grandma to 4 very special littles!!
