Kelly, brings over 20 years of experience working in the medical field with geriatric and disabled patients. During her years managing a surgical practice in St. Petersburg, she started to recognize the myriad ways that elderly patients fall through the cracks and decided that she wanted to redirect her knowledge and skills to assist and advocate for this vulnerable population. She also experienced the frustration and helplessness of being a long-distance daughter for her father who was battling cancer in another state. This experience reinforced her growing passion to work directly with seniors and help bridge the gap for long-distance families dealing with the challenges of aging and acute medical crises.
Originally from Boston, Kelly has lived in the Tampa Bay area for over 30 years and has vast experience navigating within the medical communities of Pinellas County. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of South Florida,receiving her bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences. She later returned to University of Florida and earned a graduate certificate in Geriatric Care Management in order to enhance her professional skillset and begin a career in Aging Life Care.
