Kelly has been a registered dental hygienist for over 10 years and has been working with Dr. Walker for nearly 4 years. She was born and raised in the San Jose area. During her last year of high school, she decided to pursue dental hygeiene due to the inspiration and encourage of her cheerleading coach, who was a hygienist. Also, Kelly's mother, who had worked as a dental assistant, encouraged her to choose this career. Kelly was admitted to the dental hygeiene program at the University of the Pacific, in Stockton, Ca, where she earned a bachelors of science degree in 3 years.
Post graduation, she lived in San Francisco, where she gained experience working in downtown offices for 5 years. Kelly currently lives in Morgan Hill with her husband and spunky 1.5 year old daughter, Madison.
