Kelly began working in research during her freshman year of college and fell head-over-heels for it. In addition to other research projects, she worked as an undergraduate research assistant with the Race and Intergroup Dynamics Lab as well as the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience of Aging (CANA) Lab. She also has experience as a volunteer/intern with the Laureate Institute for Brain Research in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She joined the Healthy Mind Lab in July 2016. As a member of the MEDEX team, she works in recruitment, screening, baseline appointment scheduling, and data collection. She is deeply passionate about making a difference through applied research and is thrilled to be a part of such an incredible team.
