Provider Bio

From the Provider

“I was drawn to women’s health because I loved being part of very special and vulnerable moments—but even more because of the opportunity I have every day to empower women of all ages to make informed health care decisions. Whether that’s being there for a teen who’s considering her first birth control method, or helping someone decide whether to have a hysterectomy to manage a gynecological issue and improve her quality of life. Being there for women who are trying to figure out their own best path forward is an honor.”

About the Provider

In addition to supporting their health care decision making, Dr. Kelly loves the clinical variety that comes along with OB/GYN and meeting the needs of women throughout their lives. Beyond caring for patients during pregnancy, she helps them address gynecological concerns, such as abnormal bleeding, uterine fibroids, adenomyosis and post-menopausal bleeding. She enjoys caring for teenagers, helping young adults as they begin to consider their fertility and family planning options and working with busy moms to help them figure out how to best care for themselves as they’re meeting the needs of their families. Dr. Kelly is also a skilled laparoscopic surgeon.

In addition to clinical care, Dr. Kelly is currently the OB/GYN department chair at Meridian Park Hospital. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking and spending time outdoors with her husband, their two children and two dogs. She also plays the piano and loves to read and spend time with her friends and family.
