A native of Louisiana, Kelly Monaghan, DVM, DACVIM (SAIM), received her veterinary degree from Louisiana State University in 2007. She went on to complete a rotating internship and small animal internal medicine residency at Tufts University. After completion of her residency, she became a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin. During her time at UW, she started the first dialysis program in the state and trained other faculty members and residents on the use of this therapy for pets with kidney disease. She is active in various committees within the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and is director of our internship program, mentoring new veterinarians.
While Dr. Monaghan enjoys all aspects of internal medicine, her clinical interests include kidney and urinary diseases and immune-mediated diseases. Outside of work, she enjoys cooking, various outdoor activities, such as hiking, skiing, and running, and spending time with her family, Dr. Ben Nolan, their two kids, and their furry family consisting of 1 dog and 2 guinea pigs.
