MSN, APRN, AGACNP-BC
Over the course of the next decade, Kelly worked in a number of different locations as an ER nurse, an ICU nurse and a flight nurse. In fact, she considers the ten years she spent as a flight nurse as a career highlight and one of her favorite jobs. Yet, working so much in the ICU and ER also gave Kelly an up-close look at the results of poor diet and lifestyle management. She witnessed how health and wellness become an uphill battle with poor nutrition.
This desire to look at medicine from a different angle ultimately led Kelly to become an EVEXIAS patient. By being and EVEXIAS patient led her to having a better understanding of all the different ways hormonal balance affects overall health. She could see that balancing hormones had the potential to get to the root of a lot of problems, sometimes before they have the chance to start.
After receiving her Masters of Science in Nursing (Adult and Gerontological Acute Care Nurse Practitioner) from the University of Texas at El Paso in 2021, Kelly is looking forward to providing patients with high-quality care and educating them about the connections between hormonal balance and overall wellness. Having been an EVEXIAS patient for 5 years, she understands how each patient feels when they first sit down for an office visit. Kelly also knows first-hand how great you can feel after finding hormonal balance, so she feels like she is the perfect person to help anxious patients at ease as they embark on the path to optimal health and wellness.
When Kelly isn’t seeing patients, she enjoys spending time with her horses. She also enjoys team roping and has even won some buckles.
