Kelley Nguyen earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of California, San Diego, and was a certified pharmacy technician before becoming a medical assistant. While working at an in-home primary care and wound practice, she developed an urge to engage in more direct client care as well as a desire to progress her career. As a medical assistant at Thrive Wellness Sacramento, Kelley now supports the clinical team in providing individualized care for adolescents and adults in eating disorder treatment.
