About Kelli Durkin:

Kelli Durkin is VP of Customer Service at Chewy. In her position, she oversees an award-winning customer service department that provides an exceptional level of service to Chewy customers.

Kelli has been with Chewy almost since day one, having been the fourth person hired when the company launched in 2011. She started as Director of Customer Service and was initially a one-man department. However, that very quickly changed.

A native of Central Florida, Kelli is the proud pet parent of Bruno, a five-year old French Bulldog, and Wynnie, a one-year old English Bulldog.
