Kelli Hansen
Academic Director / Principal

Kelli was born in Oregon, but moved to Utah when she was young. She has spent a lot of time in Utah, New Hampshire, and Italy, and these three places have her heart. Kelli is married and has 2 children.

Kelli has worked in education since 2000 teaching a variety of settings and ages from 4th grade to adults; private school, public school, and adult education. Kelli was also a teacher with Stillwater Academy from 2000-2013, and has returned as an administrator. She is a talented English teacher, but moved to administration in 2014, where she is able to put her skills to a different use. Her expertise is in college planning and scholarships, credit recovery, and creating and implementing school systems.

In her free time, Kelli enjoys training and competing in Ironman triathlons. After beating a battle with cancer in 2020, she now working to make her comeback to competing and will have her first ironman event in 2022.

What Kelli loves most about Stillwater Academy is the long-term change she sees in its students. Stillwater is a special place and she's been fortunate enough to be part of the program as a family member to a former client, a teacher, and now an administrator. Stillwater is family, and former students she's worked with over the past 20 years, still check in - that's how you know Stillwater is a special place.
