Born and raised in California, Kelly Fordham knew that animals would always play a special role in her life. Growing up she had a dog horses, goats, and cared for the barn cats. Weekends were spent riding her horses through the apple orchards of her hometown.
Kelly majored in graphic and fine art while attending college in California. After graduating she worked as Continuous Improvement Coordinator and Facilitator for SSi-TDK, a large integrated circuit company in Santa Cruz. She formed and managed teams within the company to find solutions to procedural and financial problems in their respective departments at the company.
Looking for warmer weather and to live within walking distance to the ocean, she and her husband Gary moved to Ormond Beach about fifteen years ago. She couldn’t imagine living or working anywhere else. She finds helping our people overcome obstacles tremendously rewarding and is touched that our clients love their pets so much!
When Kelly isn’t managing the hospital, you can find her redecorating someone’s home or in her art studio painting pet portraits, combining two things she loves – animals and art! Many of her dog portraits can be found on the wall throughout the hospital. If not in her studio, she’ll be at the beach with her yellow lab Marley and possibly taking pictures of her husband Gary surfing the local break!
