As part of our interdisciplinary research team, Kelly supports various projects related to population- and community-based health research and quality improvement of health care systems. She assists in conducting thorough background, literature, and market reviews; performing content audits; developing data collection tools and evaluation plans; completing qualitative data analysis; and coordinating research-based projects.

Passionate about improving health literacy and increasing self-determination among underserved populations, Kelly devotes her efforts to initiatives that use community engagement and participatory approaches to bolster communities’ voices and inform processes that cater to their needs and contribute to improving population health. She previously supported a type 2 diabetes and childhood obesity prevention initiative based out of B.C. Children’s Hospital aimed at promoting healthy lifestyle behaviors to children and families through intersectoral action, capacity-building, and stakeholder engagement.

Using her experiences in research environments in clinical and population health contexts, Kelly works to gather quantitative and qualitative information, and ensures that the knowledge and data collected is synthesized and translated into formats that meet audiences where they’re at, while still creating impact. Her inquisitive nature is reflected in her research, and a love of travelling and eating new foods.

Kelly holds a BSc in Integrated Sciences from the University of British Columbia and a Master of Public Health from Simon Fraser University.
