This mother-daughter combo is truly remarkable!

Growing up, Kayla remembers her mother studying in nursing school. She even recalls at the age of 11 watching her pinning ceremony. Her mother has also been an inspirational force in her life and someone she admires and looks up to. Big shoes to fill is something she still hears even though she’s now a Senior RN in surgical services.

Before joining Oswego Health in 2008, Kelly worked in Fulton at what was once Lee Memorial Hospital. All of her clinical rotations were in Syracuse and she never really had much exposure to Oswego Health. She realized quickly though that bigger is not always better and wanted an environment that valued family, teamwork, and community.

After Lee closed, she transitioned over to Oswego Hospital where she worked in the Medical Surgical Unit and today is the Director of Fulton & Central Square Medical Center.

Kelly loves being able to care for her community. Connecting with the people in my community and helping them navigate their healthcare needs gives me purpose.

While Kayla was studying for her Bachelor's in Health and Wellness, she worked per diem as a health educator for the Oswego County Department of Health. She loved the educational side of healthcare and it wasn’t until Kelly pointed out, how education is a critical component of patient care, did Kayla realize she would soon realize her passion would lead her to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become an RN.

Kayla started at Oswego Health as an ED Technician part-time while in school. She’s been with the organization since 2015 and has enjoyed having the opportunity to grow professionally. Working in PACU/ASU she feels she’s an integral part of the patient experience. Both before and post-surgery, she’s there offering reassurance and support to her patients. It’s one of the best feelings.

Both Kayla and Kelly love the work-life balance and family-oriented culture at Oswego Health. Kayla plans on going back to school to become a Family Nurse Practitioner and will take advantage of the organization’s tuition assistance program.
