Dr. Michelle Kelly (Dr. Michelle)
Dr. Michelle was born and raised on the outskirts of Philadelphia. She attended undergraduate school in upstate NY at the Rochester Institute of Technology. There, she studied engineering, worked as a cooperative education student at Kodak, and conducted research in magnetic resonance imaging. Dr. Michelle then moved downstate to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in NYC. A subsequent move south to Atlanta brought Dr. Michelle to Emory University for her pediatric residency. After finishing her training in 2000, Dr. Michelle became board certified and entered private practice in the metro Atlanta area. She also spent time as a hospitalist at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite. Her special interests include genetics, adolescent medicine, and mindfulness.
Dr. Michelle became a 200-hour certified yoga instructor in 2018 in hopes of sharing such practices with her patients. Covid hit and that goal had to be postponed. During the pandemic, Dr. Michelle studied mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and is now working on her MBSR teacher certification. She incorporates the techniques of mindfulness into her daily medical practice and plans to offer structured education in the future. Dr. Michelle resides in Alpharetta with her husband, and soon to be, one baby bird. The older kids have flown to university.
