Kathy started her dental career in 1972 when she received her dental assisting certificate from Southern College for Dental Assisting in Orlando, Florida. She completed her pratical training at the Orlando Naval Training Center. After her assistant training, Kathy also worked in a dental labratory, fabricating partial dentures. After a few years off to start her family, Kathy resumed her attraction to the dental field by assisting in a private practice, endodontic office.
For the past 14 years, Kathy has been Dr. Kelly's primary dental assistant. Kathy loves being Dr. Kelly's second pair of hands in creating beautiful smiles and healthy teeth.
Away from the office, Kathy is a spiritual mentor through Someone Cares Prison Ministry, to numerous inmates incarcerated throughout the United States. She also volunteers at the Montgomery County correctional facility in Clarksburg, Maryland. Through Compassion International, Kathy also sponsors children, eight inmates and four little girls in South America.
