A native of Bend, Dr. Kelley completed medical school and a pre-doctoral fellowship at Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences in Yakima, WA. She went on to complete a post-doctoral research fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital with the Nerve Unit, and later completed her residency at Dell Medical School at the University of Texas in Austin.
Dr. Kelley chose a career in medicine because she’s passionate about helping others lead healthier, happier lives. “I view the patient doctor relationship as one of collaboration,” she says. “I get to know my patients and work with them to diagnose and treat their conditions in ways that honor their individual values and life goals.” As a comprehensive neurologist, Dr. Kelley diagnoses and treats all disorders of the nervous system, with particular interest in headaches, neuroimmunology and neuromuscular disorders.
When she’s not seeing patients, Dr. Kelley enjoys the many outdoor activities Central Oregon has to offer, including cross-country skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, and trail running. She also likes to tend to her garden and attend concerts around town.
