Kelly obtained her Master of Physician Assistant Studies at The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas after earning two Bachelor of Science degrees in Nutritional Science and Biology at The University of Texas. She placed in the top 8% of her Physician’s Assistant class which earned a place in the “Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities.” and scored among the top 6% nationally in the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam in 2010.
Kelly began her career providing primary care for patients from age 2 to 97 in a well-established Family Practice clinic in Bedford, Texas. After moving to Austin in 2014, she worked autonomously as a sole provider at a local urgent care clinic. One year later she became a provider for a busy downtown practice performing many of the same duties she will be doing here at River Hill Family Medicine such as primary and acute care, chronic disease management, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Kelly embraces the River Hills Family philosophy to provide unparalleled personal care to each and every one of our patients. She and her husband enjoy calling Austin home and look forward to welcoming their first child in September.

Debbie graduated from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston with a degree in Physician Assistant Studies, after undergraduate work at UT Austin. She began her career in medicine working in a rural Texas town, and after several years, moved back to Austin. She worked in a large clinic from 1993 until 2007, at which time she and her husband, Will, decided they needed an adventure. They took jobs in rural central-eastern Oregon, where Debbie served as one of only two medical providers for the entire county. In a medical clinic so remote as to be considered “frontier”, she learned about the special needs of an underserved rural practice. There she developed health and wellness initiatives and programs that were featured on NBC’s “Biggest Loser”, NPR’s “All Things Considered”, American Profile Magazine and numerous newspaper and news shows. She was given a “Central Oregon Red Cross Hero” Award, A Governor’s Award for Health and Fitness, and was a finalist for the Oregon Health Hero Award.
Debbie enjoys motivating people to make healthy lifestyle choices. Working once again with Dr. Naglieri, she is enthusiastic about the opportunity to provide professional, experienced, high quality patient care with a true personal commitment to patients. She looks forward to seeing her “old” patients again, as well as many new ones.
