Kelli McAdams (born 1989) is a minor character in the Tales from the Tuckerverse series. Kelli is a Decker State College cheerleader, being a more senior member of the squad as well as a Library Science major. Infantile is a word that tends to sum Kelli up, possessing a baby-like voice as well as a bubbly and ditzy personality, though one that does lend itself to a great deal of courage.
Kelli was born and raised in the Bel Air district of Los Angeles, California. Kelli's parents both worked in the film industry, Gerard McAdams being an academy award-nominated make-up artist and Meryl McAdams being an academy award-nominated screenwriter. When Kelli was a small child her parents adopted a younger girl that they named Rylee McAdams. Kelli and Rylee grew up thinking of each other as true sisters, it seeming at times as if Kelli even forgets they don't actually share family blood. Education-wise Kelli's grades were very average, though she proved to be very good at project reseach and the memorization of rules. Kelli's parents hoped she might study law but Kelli's grades didn't favor studying it, so Kelli instead went with studying library science at Decker State College.
Kelli first arrived at DSC a couple of weeks before the first semester started, wanting to join the cheerleading squad and get to know her roommate. Pamela Flipspatrick became Kelli's roommate and the blonde immediately took to the redhead, impressed with her brains and the fact that they were both majoring in library science. Rachel Xanders, Michelle Gim, Julie Vaughn and Brianne Walsh became some of Kelli's first friends at college, taking to all her fellow cheerleaders immediately. Within the squad Kelli was known for being very gutsy, often willing to do moves when others girls worried they might be risky.
Near the end of her first year Kelli joined the Lady Raptors on their trip to the multi-state tournament in Salt Lake City, only to get stranded south of Stillsville when the bus she was on broke down. The group later explored the city and Kelli, along with most of the cheerleading squad that was present, was frozen by Annabelle Carter as well as Isaac Carter and their camera. Kelli however didn't remember what had happened, and in spite of later reports she never suspected that Julie and her sister Kat Vaughn had secretly kept the camera after the Carter twins were captured.
During her second year Kelli was once again one of the top cheerleaders, joining the others on a raid at a local wax museum where she and the others were pranked by the magic camera. Kelli was also featured in a T&M Productions product but she was not aware of it, frozen the whole time, and has never heard of the small company. When Ashley Tisdale was circulating the DSC campus she drugged the entire cheerleading team with Type-7. Kelli was unaware that during this time Pamela was more or less tortured by Ashley, and that this led to the formation of the Scooby Gang. Despite being best friends with Pam her roommate kept her more or less in the dark about everything, but she did disclose her suspicions about Tucker Holmes to her after a strange dream that seemed all too real.
Kelli ended up stumbling into Scooby events when she arrived at Balfour Boutique on day, having heard about it from Michelle, and discovered Rachel as a mannequin. Kelli was frozen by Michelle to keep this fact a secret, Pam later ending up frozen as well. Kelli was then selected by Sandy Vanholt to be exposed to Transmoxide and then hypnotized to become a slave to her will.
