My Philosophy

It is an honor to be a trusted member of a family's team to set each infant, child and young adult up for success in their health, growth, development, safety, and learning. I listen first and work to provide individual care that is evidence based, prevention-oriented, and compassionate with a constant eye on social determinants of health and public health issues impacting children and families.


Kate Kelly came to Western Mass to attend Mount Holyoke College after growing up in Worcester, Mass. She has now lived here for 25+ years with the exception of one year spent in a full-time volunteer program  painting murals with young people in Fresno, California. Kate worked in the field of Public Health at several city and town health departments and the state Department of Public Health for 10 years before becoming a Nurse Practitioner. During most of that time she also spent evenings and weekends working as both an Emergency Medical Technician and Firefighter.

Most of Kate’s role models in Public Health were nurses and most of the problems she saw in her ambulance work were preventable, so becoming a Nurse Practitioner in primary care seemed like a great fit. In particular she loves working with children and families and the constant focus on prevention in pediatrics. After a 2.5-year hiatus from primary care practice during the pandemic, during which she was a leader in the public health COVID vaccination response efforts in Western MA, Kate is happy to be back in pediatric primary care working with kids and families. She can be found out and about in Western Mass. at various playgrounds with her own two school-aged children and walking or hiking with her dogs. She also loves to read and enjoy making art or craft projects from knitting to pottery to printmaking.
