Doctors & Staff
Doctor Kelly Beatty, originally from Kentucky, received her M.D. from Ohio State University in 1987.
She then headed west to do her pediatric residency at Children's Hospital Oakland, fulfilling a long-time
dream of living in California. She began her pediatric primary care career in Concord in 1991 and established
a thriving, fun and fulfilling practice. Another "career" called her away, however, in 1998 when she had her
first child. Doctor Beatty took what turned out the be the worlds' longest maternity leave (8 years!), having two
more babies in that time and working harder at home than she ever had as a doctor! By the time 2006 rolled around,
she was ready to return to pediatric medicine. She rejoined her old practice and was delighted to reconnect with
many of her old patients at that time, as well as establish warm relationships with lots of new patient families.
In her free time, she does lots of activities with her husband and three kids, Chandley (born in 1998), Corinne (born in 2000),
and Cason (born in 2003). She also enjoys reading, arts and crafts, skiing and Starbucks.
Doctor Jennifer Burgham was born and raised in Oakland, and has remained in the Bay Area ever since. She attended
Stanford University where she obtained her Bachelor's degree in Human Biology with a focus on Societal Influences
on the Development of Children. She went on to attend medical school at UCSF and then completed her residency in
Pediatrics at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Oakland. She was fortunate enough to join this practice right
after graduating from her residency program in 2003, and couldn't imagine a better place to practice pediatrics!
Outside of work, she enjoys baking, hiking, and jogging. Most of all, she loves spending time at home with her husband
and two children, Aiden, born in 2006, and Ella, born in 2008.
Meaghan Pugh, NP
Nurse Practitioner Meaghan Pugh is originally from Oakland, CA.
She attended Oberlin College in Ohio, where she studied neuroscience and played varsity volleyball. After four real winters, she decided it was time to return to California. Working for two years as tutor for preschool aged children with autism she discovered a passion for child health and development. She trained to be a pediatric nurse practitioner at UCSF School of Nursing, where she also pursued her scientific interests as a research assistant studying the genetics of autism. Since graduating, she has been working and teaching as a pediatric nurse practitioner in the Bay Area, and recently got married at the family homestead in California.
We are very excited to have Meaghan as part of our team starting February 3rd, 2014.
