Even before she learned how to speak, Kelli made a television appearance, as a diapers baby, and continued throughout her childhood to feature in several commercials. As she reached teen years, her ambitions became higher, and after high school focused fully on an acting career.
Kelli went to Beverly Hills High School, where she was quite focused on performing arts, and as a result landed the lead role of Julia in the school’s production of “Romeo and Juliet”, alongside Steve Burton.
She made her screen debut in the TV series “Beauty and the Beast” in 1989, followed by the role of Margaret Wilson in the made-for-television film “The Case of the Hillside Stranglers” in the same year. The next year Kelli portrayed Mattie Walker in the TV series “Elvis”, with Michael St. Gerard portraying the king of rock and roll. In 1991 she had a minor role in the Primetime Emmy Award- nominated drama “Switched at Birth”, then in 1992 portrayed Kate Broderick in the made-for-television film “A Woman Scorned: The Betty Broderick Story”, then in the same year repeated the role in the sequel “Her Final Fury: Betty Broderick, the Last Chapter”., a solid base to her net worth.
Her next major role was as Lindsay Dole in the TV series “The Practice” (1997-2004), appearing in 145 episodes until the series end, which increased her wealth to a large degree, abut also improved her popularity. While in the show, Kelli had several other acting engagements, including the roles of Alice Kinian in the drama “Flowers For Algernon” (2000), based on the novel by Daniel Keyes, and as Attorney Monica Crane in the TV series “The Lyon’s Den” (2003). In 2004 she portrayed Holly Grant in the film “A Boyfriend for Christmas”, starring next to her mother Shannon Wilcox and Patrick Muldoon, then later landed another TV role, this time as Dr. Gillian Foster in the TV crime drama series “Lie to Me” (2009-2011), next to Tim Roth and Brendan Hines.

Regarding her personal life, Kelli has been married to writer and producer Ajay Sahgal since 1996; the couple has three children together. Kelli is known to often volunteer at the non-profit organization Young Storytellers.
During the second season of The Practice (1997), Kelli became pregnant with her first child. The pregnancy was not written into the show, and so the writers gave her character the job of re-decorating the law office...easily hiding her expanding belly behind tables and paintings. By the time the fifth season came around, Ms. Williams became pregnant once again, but this time 'Lindsay' was newly married to senior partner 'Bobby' and writers were able to fit it into the storyline. In the show's seventh season, Kelli became 'pregos' once again and, although her on-screen marriage was still on (but hanging by a thread), producers failed to make 'Lindsay' pregnant.
Gave birth to her 3rd child, a Son on 11 July 2003. The baby's name is Ravi Lyndon Sahgal.
On 3 February 2001 her second child, daughter Sarame Jane Sahgal, was born weighing 7lbs 12oz.
