Kelly earned a B.S. in Communications from Appalachian State University, then an RN degree from Mercy School of Nursing in Charlotte. She worked for several years in the neuro intensive care unit at Carolinas Healthcare System/Atrium before joining our staff. The connection is clear: A commitment to helping patients and families navigate difficult situations, in our case, memory and movement disorders. A Charlotte native, she and her husband, Chad, have three children, Parker, Payton and Paxton. If she’s not working with patients, she’s spending quality time with her family.
