Kerri Kelly

Kerri Kelly is the founder of CTZNWELL, a movement to mobilize the wellness community into a powerful force for change. Her work was sparked on 9/11, when she lost her firefighter stepdad in the Towers. She quickly discovered the power of mindfulness, not just as a tool for personal healing, but as a catalyst for collective change. Since then, Kerri has worked passionately across communities to fight for justice and well-being. She’s been instrumental in translating the tools of wellness into practical application and social action in the public sector, working in collaboration with community organizers, spiritual leaders, and policy makers. Kerri’s leadership has inspired a movement to democratize wellness that is actively organizing around issues of economic justice (Fight for 15), food system reform (Plate of the Union), and civic engagement (voteWELL).
