Kelli was introduced to The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital in 2016 when her niece completed an internship at the Hospital. She later visited the Hospital with her family. “Visiting The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital was one of the most eye-opening and beautiful experiences I can remember,” said O’Hara. “Not only was I filled with awe and wonder to meet such brave and extraordinary children, but I was humbled by the strength, generosity and fierce dedication of those who give of their hearts and minds to help these children every day. I was so inspired by it all.” O’Hara grew up in Oklahoma and attended Deer Creek High School. She graduated from Oklahoma City University with a bachelor’s degree in vocal performance/opera. A six-time Tony Award nominee, O’Hara won the award for Best Lead Actress in a Musical for the 2015 revival of The King and I. In 2018, she received her first Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Actress in a drama series for the hit web series “The Accidental Wolf”.
