Kelly B. Engelmann founded Enhanced Wellness Living in the Jackson/Ridgeland area of Mississippi in 2004. Kelly has dedicated years to researching and developing treatment strategies using a food first approach for healing her patients. Through years of experience in clinical, hospital, surgical, and obstetrics/OB-GYN healthcare, and her keen observations, Kelly became aware that, even with the best doctors, the patient population she was serving was developing and living in a chronic disease state. She understood that the tools and resources patients needed to gain control of their health and live a life of vitality were limited. Kelly was convinced she could be doing more for her patients and her passion for using food and nutrition as a tool for healing blossomed.
At Enhanced Wellness Living, Kelly and her team partners with each of their patients to develop individual wellness plans, which ensures you are educated in creating a sustainable lifestyle of wellness. Kelly understands that your beliefs and values should align with your wellness goals. She developed a well-thought-out curriculum for her patients that serves as a part of the learning and empowerment of their journey. Kelly believes that a lifestyle of health and wellness has a ripple effect and knows that the tools she imparts on her patients impact not only the patient, but their families and friends as well.

Founder of Enhanced Wellness Living and Co-Founder of Synergee
Kelly B. Engelmann found her passion for healing others early on in life, beginning her career in medicine working in an OB-GYN clinic while still attending high school. With limited funds for college, Kelly’s mentor encouraged her to pursue an Operating Room Technician Certification. Kelly successfully completed her Certification and worked in the operating room and labor and delivery while continuing her education.
Kelly earned an Associates of Arts Degree from Hinds Community College, followed by her Baccalaureate Degree from the University of Mississippi. While studying at the University of Mississippi she was selected to serve in the Valor Program at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center. There, Kelly received mentorship from professional nurses, which inspired her to continue her educational and nursing path. Kelly soon graduated top of her class, receiving the Christine Olavee Award.
After graduation, Kelly joined the team at the Mississippi State hospital; an experience which she reflects on as humbling. Here, Kelly cared for chronically ill patients that often had little to no financial resources or family support. During this time, she earned her Masters in Nursing and her Family Nurse Practitioner training at the University of Southern Mississippi. Kelly was blessed to find her dream position in an OB-GYN clinic on the Mississippi Gulf Coast with yet another inspiring mentor. Here she learned the value always listening to your patients. Kelly completed her RN-FA Certification and was able to support the physician in both the operating room and clinic.
In 2004 Kelly founded Enhanced Wellness Living in Mississippi. She started with what she knew best, hormone balancing. Kelly received her Master’s Degree in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine from the University of South Florida’s Medical School. She completed the Fellowship in Anti-Aging Medicine with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.
Kelly is a student for life and of life. She is committed to both the Mississippi Nurses Association and the American Nurses Association. In 2019 Kelly co-founded Synergee, with a passion and commitment to expanding education on and access to Functional Medicine. Kelly is a student for life and a student of life, she finds joy in impacting the lives of all of those around her!
