Additionally, Giddish was an all-star athlete and member of the school's championship winning softball team. Giddish attended the University of Evansville in Indiana, where, as a senior, she was an Irene Ryan Award finalist and was thus selected to perform at the Kennedy Center.

Later that year, she made a guest appearance on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," had a recurring role on "Damages" and appeared in Boaz Yakin's feature film "Death in Love," opposite Josh Lucas and Jacqueline Bissett.

Giddish starred in NBC's "Chase" and Fox's "Past Life," and had memorable guest appearances on "Life on Mars," "Without a Trace" and a popular multi-episode arc on CBS' long-running series "The Good Wife." She recently starred in the dark comedy feature film "Breathless," with Gina Gershon, Wayne Duvall, Ray Liotta and Val Kilmer, and guest-starred on NBC's "Chicago P.D." and "Chicago Fire."

Hi Kelli,
I am so thrilled that you stay for Season 16. I love your character and your talent and charisma shines through every line. Nervous about the finale.
I hope so much that you received the chocolate for your birthday ! It meant so much to me to send you something for your Bday. Sorry that I keep asking you if you received it, but I wasn't sure where to send it, so I had it delivered to the studio at Chelsea Piers. Your acting is so amazing in every show.
Your big fan,
Corinne Pina
