“I love being in the operating room.” That’s what Dr. Kelly Puster says about her job as a surgeon and that is where she was meant to be.

Kelly graduated from college with a degree in chemistry. She found a job in research but realized it was just not for her. Acting on the suggestion of a college advisor, she went to medical school. She earned her M.D. from the medical school at the University of Iowa.

Dr. Puster joined Elkhart General in 2003 and continues to serve the community of Elkhart County.

Her colleagues have great respect for Kelly. They say she enjoys taking on challenges and working through problems until they are solved. She stands up for what is right.

Kelly is a role model for women who balance a professional career and family. She has been married for over twenty years and is raising three teenage boys.
