Whether speaking or writing Kali is best known for combining her wit with God's wisdom into inspiring stories that delight audiences, young and old, male and female.
  • During college Kali modeled professionally, hosted a television show and competed in beauty pageants. In 1973 Kali was crowned Miss Missouri-World and competed in the Miss World-USA pageant. However, that tiara went to Miss Arizona, Lynda Carter--a real Wonder Woman.
  • Kali also enjoyed a 16-year marketing career in corporate America. Three Fortune 500 corporations nationally recognized her accomplishments.
  • In 1993 she retired from corporate life to raise her nine-year old stepdaughter, Elizabeth. Faced with an empty nest in 1999 Kali began to pursue her passion for writing, speaking and marketing her private-label chocolates.
  • On New Year's Eve in 2005 Kali's life took a tragic turn-her precious stepdaughter, Elizabeth, lost a 5-year battle with an eating disorder. Since then Kali's mission has been to shine a bright light into the dark corners of the deadly mental disease that claimed her daughter's life.
  • Kali and her husband, Larry, have worked diligently to rebuild our lives, while God has worked miraculously to mend their hearts. They have become a living testimony to Divine comfort, peace and ultimately joy in the midst of unspeakable grief. And their story has inspired audiences of all faiths and denominations.
