Certified Physician Assistant

Meet Keliea Winstead, PA-C

How many years have you worked at MMC?
I worked for MMC (everywhere from front office to schedule surgeries for the specialty clinic) for 2 years while finishing my undergraduate degree.  I began working at MMC again in 2019 as a provider.

What are your specialties?
I am primarily a Family Medicine provider, but I am specialized in Emergency Services.

Is there a service you provide or a medical topic you are passionate about that you would like to share more on FB and MMC website? What is it and briefly highlight key points.
I believe that maintaining your health is an important.  This is something we should begin teaching at a young age.  Encouraging healthy habits in children will increase the chance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  This is why I believe regular wellness physicals are important for children.

Why did you choose to be a provider as your profession?
I became interested in becoming a provider when my son was la toddler and seeing a provider at MMC.  The more we talked about the profession, the more interested and invested I became in completing school and becoming a PA.

Do you have a fun tidbit about yourself that people may not know about you?
I am also a Professor at Bethel University.
