Kellie grew up near Nashville, Tennessee and remained there to attend Vanderbilt University where she received both her Bachelors of Science in Child Development and Masters of Science in Nursing in Pediatric Primary Care in 2013.
After graduating, she moved to the Carolinas where she practiced for over 3 years as a board certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in outpatient private practice pediatrics. She moved to colorful Colorado in 2017 and is elated to join the Rose Pediatrics team. Building from her background in child development, she has a special interest in the growth and development of children and enjoys watching children learn and grow through the stages of childhood. Kellie loves pediatrics because it provides the opportunity to make personal, meaningful relationships with families.
Aside from caring for children, Kellie’s passions include exploring the outdoors and the arts – primarily hiking, backpacking, reading, painting, and traveling. Since moving she has enjoyed exploring Denver and the surrounding beauty of the mountains with her family and relaxing with her cat, Pepper.
