Kelly Magee has been a nurse for over 16 years, primarily caring for people with cancer. Working first as a registered nurse and then obtaining a Masters degree to be a nurse practitioner, Kelly treasured the opportunity to develop relationships with patients and their families during such stressful experiences. In addition to her clinical practice, Kelly held a leadership role as the Director of the Nurse Practitioner Program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Kelly found her way to meditation in 2018 after realizing that she was suffering from burnout and struggling to show up and be present for her patients, colleagues and loved ones. Kelly completed the Three Jewels NYC Meditation Teacher Training and Mentorship and now teaches mediation there. Kelly currently works at a health tech company doing cancer research and is also studying Buddhist philosophy via the Asian Classics Institute Foundation courses.
