Kelly Tuttle

Kelly Tuttle joined the “head injury survivors club” (as she described it) in 2015, the night another car pulled in front of her as she was driving. It wasn’t until three months later that she realized something was seriously wrong. Kelly’s traumatic brain injury (TBI) marked the beginning of a new life and personal journey of self-rediscovery.

A neurology nurse practitioner, Kelly has a front-row seat to observe patients struggling with many of the same things she experienced in her recovery. She strives to share her coping strategies and tools and help them continue to work and study while they heal. Kelly also wants TBI patients to know there is hope. She got better, and they can too.

Kelly is a member of the California Association for Nurse Practitioners, the California Association of Nurses/National Nurse United, and the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International. She earned her master of science in nursing from Gonzaga University and her bachelor of science in nursing from California State University, Fresno.

A longtime martial arts student, Kelly has a second-degree black belt in kenpō karate and a blue belt in Brazilian jujitsu. She is also an obsessed knitter without enough storage space for her yarn and a lover of adult coloring books and pencils.
