Johnson is a native of Moscow, Idaho. Both of her parents were coaches (baseball and gymnastics) and physical education teachers.[3]

Kelli played point guard for the Moscow High Schoolgirls’ basketball team. During that time, the team had a three-year winning streak, where they won three consecutive state titles.[3][4] The Moscow-Pullman Daily News named her State A-2 Most Valuable Player for her senior year.[3]

In 1994, she continued her basketball career immediately, as a freshman in her home town, at the University of Idaho as a shooting guard for the Idaho Vandals women’s basketball team.[3] She started all 110 games of her career, which were the third most in school history.[3] As a junior, she set the record for the most three-point field goals in a game (seven) against the University of North Texas.[3] That season, she also broke the career 3-point school record.[3] By the end of her college career, Kelli had made 207 3-pointers – 81 more than the nearest contender.[3][5] These records stood for 19 and 17 years, respectively.[3] Johnson graduated in 1998 from Idaho with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.[6] She joined her father in the Idaho Vandals Hall of Fame in 2016.[3][7]
