Kelly Vanvickle

CEO, Nurse Practitioner

With over two decades of nursing experience, I specialize in Women’s Health as a nurse practitioner since 2013. My journey began in 1999, leading me to women’s health as a nurse case manager in 2008. This ignited my dedication to women’s well-being, fostering an understanding of women’s health complexities.
Driven by a desire to enhance patient care, I pursued a master’s degree as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. I co-founded Key Wellness to offer comprehensive care integrating mind, body, and spirit. Embracing aesthetics, I’ve developed a passion for nurturing positive self-image and empowering self-care.

Beyond the clinic, I enjoy motorcycle rides with my husband, moments with our children and grandchildren, and learning new crafts. I’m also an outdoor enthusiast, tending to our garden and animals.
