Manager of Program Consultation
Kelly believes that working in the mental health field is a bit of a leap from her degree in Occupational Therapy, but she makes it work! Her background has made her a firm believer in helping others achieve independence, which is what led her to work for 11 years as a Clinician and Administrator for both Mayview State Hospital and Torrance State Hospital. There, she helped over 225 individuals’ transition back into the community. When Mayview closed in 2008, Kelly decided that she wanted her next job to afford her the ability to make a positive impact by continuing to help people who left Mayview. Through her position at AHCI, she is able to reach this goal, and she now focuses on providing consultation and training to Community Treatment Teams that directly support individuals on their behavioral health recovery journey and maintain their independence in the community.
