(she, her, hers)
Kelley Delaney is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Brooklyn and has been serving the TGNC community for the last seven years in student health in NYC, becoming the first primary care provider in her workplace to prescribe hormone therapy.
Kelley grew up in Connecticut and attended the University of New Haven where she studied Criminal Justice and played lacrosse. After graduation she worked in psychological research and got her Masters of Arts in Psychology at Southern Connecticut State University where she cemented her passion for working with “otherized” communities. While struggling to find a role that felt right, her mother suggested looking into becoming a Nurse Practitioner and it all came together.
She attended Yale University’s School of Nursing where she studied Adult Primary Care and Women’s Health. After completing her Nurse Practitioner degree, she joined the Connecticut list for Transgender and Gender Nonconforming healthcare providers, but it was not until working with the Student Health Department in NYC that she began to build a practice by becoming the first Primary Care provider in her workplace to prescribe hormone therapy. As she transitions out of full time practice and into academia, this was a part of her clinical role she was not ready to give up. After reading about Dr. Izzy Lowell on NPR, she is ecstatic to be joining QMed and helping to offer these great services to the NY community!
I started QueerMed to provide respectful and affirming care for the transgender community. Everyone deserves access to medical care, no matter the color of their skin, where they come from, their gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
