Laurie McGraw is speaking with Inspiring Woman Kelli Clifton Ogunsanya, a healthcare leader over a network of community health centers. In addition to her work serving the population needs of underserved individuals and families, Kelli is very focused on supporting women in their own personal development as leaders. Her own leadership journey started with the confidence building that came from programs like 4-H and later public speaking while working as a consultant. Key life moments like becoming a mother were times when Kelli needed to re-assess what was most important to her as a professional but also in finding joy in her own life. Today she is building out workforce pipeline programs for future leaders, while still finding time to teach university courses, and starting her own life coaching business. These pandemic years have taken their toll on all of us but Kelli wants us all to use this year, 2022, to manifest greatness, through growth, life balance, and leadership.
Kelli Clifton Ogunsanya currently serves as the COO of STRIDE Community Health Center. With over 18 locations, STRIDE provides community and refugee medical, dental, mental health, substance abuse, pharmacy, and community-based services, including case management, outreach to the homeless, adolescent services, health education, and maternal child health to the more than 57,000 underserved, uninsured and working individuals and families
Kelli believes that access to physical, mental, and emotional wellness are foundational for an equitable and productive society. Kelli is committed to using a systems-thinking approach to spark transformational change, foster operational excellence.
Prior to her current role, Kelli was a Client Executive for Optum, a division of UnitedHealthcare Group.
