Kelly was born in Staten Island, NY and remained there until coming to Philadelphia to attend college in 2011. Since completing her degrees at University of the Sciences, she continues to live in Philadelphia with her husband, daughter, and two cats. In her free time, Kelly enjoys working on various crafting projects, shopping, listening to music, and watching movies. She also visits her family in NY frequently and enjoys going to concerts, baseball games, and the occasional flea market with them.
Kelly has worked with a variety of pediatric populations including early intervention, school-based, and pediatric skilled nursing. Shortly after graduating, Kelly also began to work as an adjunct professor for the OT department in a variety of courses and quickly found a connection to teaching and working with students. Kelly is excited to be joining the OT department here fulltime and is looking forward to working closely with the fieldwork team to place students for fieldwork experiences.
