Growing up as a dancer and always being the person to get the dance party started, music is Modgirl's first love. Fashion and fabulous people are tied for second.
Before becoming Palm Springs' favorite DJ, Kellee McQuinn's career highlights include founding an international children’s dance and fitness company called KidTribe and creating Hoopapalooza, an interactive dance and hula hooping roadshow where she’s activated nearly 5 million children. She headlined at the White House Easter Egg Roll from 2009-2016 in partnership with Michelle Obama's Let's Move! initiative and toured with the Nickelodeon Worldwide Day of Play from 2006 - 2019. In 2012, Kellee was given a Community Leadership Award from President Obama’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition.
As a Producer, she’s created animated and live action children’s television programs, albums and music videos that have appeared on PBS, Netflix, Amazon Prime and NASA-TV. Her work in the kids’ space has honored her with a Telly Award, three Parents Choice Awards, a Teacher's Choice Award and a Creative Play Award. She also produces and directs dance films and documentaries in her "spare time."
Locally, Kellee has won the "Best of the Desert 2022" Award from the Desert Sun, a Palm Springs Women in Film “Rising Star” Award for her work in childrens entertainment as well as a “Best Actress in a Musical” Award from the Desert Theater League for playing the title role in Peter Pan.
