About Kelli Williams

Kelli Williams loves to sing and play bass guitar in between her endless duties as a Mom to two daughters, writer, event planner, school volunteer, and marketing assistant to local bars and breweries around her home in Grand Rapids, Michigan. When Kelli’s not in a bar, brewery, or fighting for justice in her invisible jet, you can find her relaxing with an IPA on her sofa… or on a Lake Michigan beach in the summer. Kelli has been writing original content at MommaNeedsABeer.com since 2009, where she believes that sometimes, ya gotta put a little alcohol on it.
