Kelly has over 20 years of experience in the research, clinical, and nonprofit settings, and is passionate about improving the quality of care and the patient experience. In her role, Kelly oversees operations, manages projects, and develops systems needed to support the visionary work of the Policy Center. Previously, Kelly managed programs/divisions at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
