After graduation, she moved to Grand Junction, Colorado and discovered her passion for working with children, infants and expectant mothers.

She is a certified Webster practitioner, this approach balances the function of the sacrum and its associated ligaments and muscles. Webster has proven to be extremely beneficial for expectant mothers and often relieves pain, increases the quality of sleep, decreases numbness and allows optimal baby positioning for shorter and less painful labor. Somehow Dr. Doug talked Dr. Kelly into moving up to Alaska too, and she spent one adventurous year in Dutch Harbor with him hiking, taking photographs (which you will find all over our office) and trying to stay warm!
