After 16 years working in the ICU, Kelly chose to work in sleep medicine so she could focus on preventing health issues. She believes good sleep is the basic building block for good health. In addition to two years of experience working in pulmonary and sleep medicine, Kelly has 30 years of nursing experience.

Kelly’s favorite part of her job is meeting new people and learning their life story. She loves being able to help people feel better by getting good sleep. She also enjoys helping people overcome their fears of trying a CPAP machine.

Kelly is a recent Portland transplant, having just moved here from Southern Oregon. She is looking forward to learning the area and trying new restaurants. Outside of work, Kelly enjoys hiking, baking, quilting, theater, a good book, and spending time with her family.
