Sherrie Hunter Kelly is a certified nurse midwife who received her Master of Science degree in nursing from Stony Brook University. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from the State University of New York at Delhi. Sherrie is a member of the New York State Association of Licensed Midwives and The American College of Nurse-Midwives.
When Sherrie was caring for her own infant, she realized the midwives who cared for her during her pregnancy changed her view of how women mother their babies. They helped her feel strong enough to safely deliver her baby and prepare for motherhood, which ultimately inspired her to become a midwife herself. Sherrie loves listening to women, hearing their questions and concerns, and finding the meaningful answers they need. Sherrie is especially interested in caring for underserved and rural populations.
Through collaboration with women, Sherrie combines her midwifery skills with her patients' needs and concerns to identify and solve any problems and promote health for women and families. Coming from a long line of women in the arts, Sherrie utilizes her art training in medicine by not only looking at her patients but really seeing who they are. Sherrie honed her skills as a nurse in a high-risk labor and delivery setting after a few years in infectious disease. That experience has allowed Sherrie to be confident in what is expected and what's unusual for pregnant women.
Sherrie loves spending time with her family in her spare time, enjoys outdoor activities like hiking and canoeing, and likes to draw and make steel sculptures. Sherrie grew up in North Texas and moved to New Mexico for college, where at first, she studied theater and design. After school, she worked for a world-renowned opera company before starting her own business with her husband building cabinets and furniture!
