Dr. Kelley is a native of the Chicagoland suburbs and loved growing up around her family’s Labrador and Golden Retriever.She went to undergrad at Elmhurst College (now University!) and studied biology before vet school. She found a love of aquatic turtles when she helped her biology professor with research and maintenance of them. Harriet, one of the aquatic turtles, even got to go to veterinary school with her. Dr. Kelley then went to the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 2020. During the summers, she dabbeled in wildlife medicine and got to work with some amazing species, including snowy owls. Even though it was a great experience, she knew she wanted to work with people and their pets to give them healthy and happy lives. Her special interests are dermatology, dentistry, ophthalmology, and internal medicine. When she is not at work she likes enjoying the outdoors, visiting family and friends, and hanging out with her Australian Shepard, Blue. Dr. Kelley is extremely excited to be a part of this resilient team and can’t wait to meet the fantastic pets that are members of Lombard Veterinary Hospital!
