Get to Know our Staff: Kelsei Graham, Fracture Clinic

What is your role at Scottish Rite for Children? 
I am a nurse coordinator at the Fracture Clinic in Frisco. I coordinate the flow and care of patients who enter our clinic, as well as monitor patients during reductions. I also speak with pediatricians to help triage patients and manage any patient phone calls or needs. The Fracture Clinic has a morning walk-in clinic from 7:30 - 9:30 a.m. for acute fractures, as well as afternoon acute slots and follow-up visits. Every day is exciting as we never know what will come through the doors. Not one single day is the same! This team is like a small family that works like a well-oiled machine. Each teammate has a key role in the clinic process - Child Life, nursing, cast techs, medical assistants, nurse practitioners and front desk staff.  

What led you to Scottish Rite? How long have you worked here? 
Before coming to Scottish Rite, I was a nurse at Children’s Plano for 10 years. Taking the opportunity here turned out to be the best decision I have ever made. Scottish Rite is truly one of a kind and it is such an honor to work for an organization who not only cares about their patients, but also about their entire staff. I have been here for five months.

What do you enjoy most about Scottish Rite?
I love how every person is a team player and treats one another like family. My favorite part is how involved and visible leadership is - this is unlike anywhere else I have been, and I am truly proud to tell everyone where I work.   
 
What was your first job? What path did you take to get here?
My first job was a nanny. I have wanted to be a nurse since I was very little and always was the kid walking around with a first aid kit, taking care of everyone I could. I started internships my senior year of high school and after graduation, started nursing school at Texas Woman’s University. After obtaining my nursing license, I started my nursing career at Texas Health Plano as a NICU nurse.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love to spend time with my husband Jason, and daughters Hailey (10) and Emerson (6). We love being outside (walking, fishing, playing) and baking together. Our daughters are active in volleyball, soccer and jiu-jitsu – their activities keep us fairly busy on the weekends.    
 
Three words to best describe you:
Caring, loving, passionate
 
What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
I would open my own gluten free bakery.
 
What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?
I let my husband’s best friend take us on a flight over downtown Dallas in a tiny crop plane.
