Kelly grew up in the Berkshires region of western Massachusetts and attended the University of Vermont as a first-generation college student. Upon earning her bachelor’s degree, she spent two years working in basic science cardiovascular research at Albany Medical Center in Albany, New York, before moving to Boston, Massachusetts to focus on cardiology clinical research at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center. Kelly then spent two years at a biopharmaceutical company in Waltham, Massachusetts working on Phase III clinical trials concentrated in major depressive disorder, and in 2017, she earned her master of science degree from Boston University. Her years of pre-clinical and clinical work solidified the decision to pursue medicine and in 2018, she enrolled in medical school at The Robert Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont. During medical school, Kelly was drawn to high-risk deliveries and neonatal care, which ignited a passion to pursue a career in pediatrics and care for patients during their youngest and most impressionable years. She is excited about the opportunity and privilege to make an early impact on children’s lives while advocating for their futures. While Kelly is passionate about neonatology, she is approaching residency as a blank slate and will determine further career interests throughout her training. In her free time, Kelly loves spending time with her husband, infant daughter, yellow lab and giant extended New England family. She enjoys cooking, baking, practicing yoga, and spending time outdoors, especially at the beach during the warmer months.
