Kelly Joyce MSN, CPNP-PC

Kelly is a native Californian, but spent her childhood in Breckenridge, Colorado. She loves all things outdoors: skiing, mountain biking, trail running and ski mountaineering. She was  fortunate to be raised by a dietitian in a family that celebrated health and instilled in her a  tradition of using food as medicine.  

After recovering from multiple concussions in her youth, Kelly chose to devote time to  educating kids on head injury prevention and educating parents on the potential chronic  physical and psychological effects. This experience, coupled with her time spent in Panama  working with communities to promote nutrition and health sustainability in schools, led Kelly to  pursue a career in pediatrics. 

Kelly received her Bachelor’s degree in Global Health from UCSB, including a semester at Kings’ College London, and graduated from Yale as a pediatric nurse practitioner. Kelly has  most recently worked in emergency medicine in Colorado and at the Pulmonary, Cystic  Fibrosis, and Sleep Study Center at UCSF. Kelly is thrilled to be back to her family roots in  Santa Monica, helping kids and families stay healthy and whole.
