Kelly Manning, PA-C
Kelly Manning joined Colorado Surgical Affiliates in August of 2022. She has extensive education across the board, obtaining her Bachelor of Science and Minor in French from Wingate University in North Carolina, as well as her Masters of Health Science from Lock Haven University in Pennsylvania.
She believes her education has not only helped shape her foundation for knowledge, but it developed her understanding of the importance of compassionate patient care, patient understanding, and patient healing. Her drive comes from wanting to provide all her patients with the best care she can give, medically and otherwise.
Kelly is extremely passionate about helping those in need. Her passion extends beyond providing care locally, as she uses medicine as a vehicle to minister to the underserved communities. Kelly is very passionate about being a part of international medical missions to provide medical care and education to impoverished nations. She believes that aiding people physically opens doors to being able to serve people in other ways.
She is eager to join our practice with starting her career in trauma. She expresses that in trauma, every day is so different, and she feels it’s a privilege to be present with someone who may be experiencing the worse day of their lives. She loves interacting with people and working on a team that puts our patients first.
Away from work, Kelly enjoys spending time outdoors with her family and friends. Her hobbies include traveling, hiking, running, singing, playing ukulele, cooking, and podcasting.
Being new to the Western slope, she is eager to get involved in the community here in Grand Junction. Previously, Kelly has partnered with many nonprofit organizations, Christian ministry groups, and has worked overseas to give to the less fortunate. From a very young age, she has had her mind set on becoming a PA and making a difference in others’ lives.
