Kelly attended Empire College and graduated with her degree in Medical Assisting and a refresher in Phlebotomy in July 2011. She started working at Gordon Medical Associates in April 2011 as an Extern, became fulltime staff in May 2011. Kelly was involved in the writing on the GMA website, and we were delighted to have her informed input in creating educational material for our patients. In early 2017 she was asked to become the Head Research Coordinator for SISOH, but remains available to assist as a Lab Tech for GMA in off hours at SISOH. She enjoys working with the patients and the wonderful staff at both GMA and SISOH. We are fortunate to have her take over our research, as her emphasis on detail and her grounding in phlebotomy is exactly what is needed. When she is not in the office she is enjoying time with her wonderful husband and two amazing children. Most weekends you can find them on the beach picnicking or exploring.
