Personal Information- Home City- Scottsdale Occupation- Small businss owner Member Since- 2017 Kelli Butler is an Arizona native with deep roots in the community. She grew up in Scottsdale, within the current boundaries of District 28, and attended Cocopah Elementary School and Chaparral High School. She studied elementary education at the University of Arizona, before moving to San Francisco where she worked in both real estate and healthcare management while helping to support her husband, Ben, through dental school.

After returning to Arizona, Kelli gained knowledge in health regulations and insurance in her role managing Butler Family Dental in Glendale, AZ. As small business owners, Kelli and her husband experienced Arizona's economic downturn from a small business owner's perspective as they dealt with the impact on the lives of their patients, their employees and their own family. Now, as the state's economy continues to improve, they still donate dental services to Glendale's Neighborhood Christian Clinic and volunteer with Arizona's Mission of Mercy Dental Clinic.

Although Kelli's work experience is mainly in the healthcare industry, her first legislative priority is education. She became interested in education policy and funding as the parent of two boys attending Madison Elementary District schools. She served first as a volunteer in their classrooms, and later on committees and boards at the school and district levels. After her sons graduated from Brophy College Prep, they enrolled at state universities. Colin graduated from the UofA before enlisting in the Navy and Cameron is currently a senior at Northern Arizona University. During their years in North Central Phoenix, Kelli served on the parent organization Executive Boards at Cross Roads Preschool and Madison Simis and as PTM President at Madison Meadows. She was a Site-Based Management Team member and an Executive Board member of the Madison Education Foundation. She served on numerous committees at Brophy College Preparatory. She was a Board member of Northern Arizona University's Parent Leadership Council. Along with her sons, Kelli was also a member of Boys Team Charity's Cactus League. She was the Philanthropy Liaison to the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center. She served as HOA President of North Central's Palmer Estates neighborhood. She is currently a member of the North Central Women's League, a local philanthropic organization.
