Kelly graduated from the University of Kentucky in 1999 with a bachelor’s of Health Sciences and a master’s degree in Physical Therapy. Over the course of her career she has had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings but joined the Dunn Physical Therapy team because she wanted to have the opportunity to be a specialist using her pediatric skills and adult pelvic health training. Kelly’s areas of specialization in pediatrics include bowel and bladder dysfunction addressing all facets of these diagnoses such as bedwetting, constipation, fecal incontinence and bladder incontinence. “It is so important for these kids to have a place to come for treatment in a comfortable environment where they receive effective management of their symptoms. The embarrassment of having these symptoms can be devastating for these kids. It is very rewarding for me to be able to help them resolve these symptoms so that they can return to normal childhood activities without hesitation.”
Additional experience in pediatrics includes hippotherapy, First Steps, and aquatic therapy. Kelly’s training is not limited to pediatrics. She also has had extensive experience working with adult population in acute care, orthopedics, neurologic and geriatric settings. Kelly is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association, the Kentucky Physical Therapy Association, and the International Children’s Continence Society.
When not working, Kelly enjoys spending time with her husband and four children. When she has the spare time she enjoys running, hiking, bike riding and cooking.
