Dr. Kellie Williams was born and raised in Texas and graduated from Keller High School in 1989. She then graduated from Texas A&M University in 1993 and from Loma Linda University School of Medicine in California in 1997. After completing residency in Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine in 2000, Dr. Williams joined Texas Children’s Pediatric Associates in Conroe, Texas where she worked for 11 years.
Dr. Williams and her family decided a change was needed and left Texas for an opportunity to work with Kaiser Permanente on the beautiful island of Maui. While living and practicing pediatrics in Hawaii was a once in a lifetime experience, ultimately being closer to family brought Dr. Williams and her family back to Texas where they look forward to setting down roots in what she considers her hometown. Dr. Williams joined Kid Care Pediatrics in June 2015.
Dr. Williams’ decision to practice medicine stemmed from her interest in science and the complex, amazing functions of the human body. The deeper she got into her medical studies, the more passionate she felt about affecting health outcomes. Pediatric medicine allows Dr. Williams to influence patients’ lives early on by working with families to promote positive health choices and habits. She strives to partner with her patients’ families and equip them with the knowledge and guidance to help raise their children toward a well-rounded, healthy future.
It is important for Dr. Williams to look beyond her patients’ immediate medical conditions, and express an interest in each of their lives as an individual. Getting to know her patients on more than a professional level helps her to better provide recommendations or therapies to families that address their needs. When positive outcomes occur as a result of these recommendations, she feels extremely fulfilled.
Dr. Williams stays balanced by spending time with her family and in her relationship with God. During her free time, she enjoys participating in activities with family, friends, and going to church. “Reading is also a passion of mine!”
