Kelly Lemon cares about women and feels like they need a strong advocate, so she heads to work each day to be that voice. Rachel Baldrige-Bush nominated Lemon and says that her passion, charisma, and sincere sympathy are astounding. She says Lemon hasn’t skipped a beat during the pandemic, continuing to deliver babies, see patients, teach students, and support pregnant and postpartum women struggling with substance abuse, calling her “an unstoppable force in the world of midwifery and women’s health.”
