Dr. Kelso and her family relocated to San Antonio at the end of summer 2009 after hurricane Ike devastated Galveston Island in 2008. Thankfully, the Island has been rebuilt through the tremendous effort of the community, but she and her family are glad to call San Antonio and the Hill Country area their home.
