She moved to Colorado 7 years ago and has been working in healthcare for over 8 years. Kelly started working as a nurse in plastic surgery over 5 years ago and absolutely loves what she does! Her favorite thing about her work is the process – she values being the one patients see in pre-op when they are nervous and being able to help calm their fears. She also enjoys seeing them after their recovery wearing a whole new confidence about themselves!

She looks forward to coming into work and being around the team as we act like one big family and support each other at work and at home.

The most rewarding part of her job is helping and caring for patients throughout their entire transformation.
