Dr. Kelli M. Rose was born and raised in Southeastern Wisconsin. As a child, she witnessed her younger brother suffer with allergies for years before he saw an allergist. Fortunately, she was also able to observe his dramatic health improvement after he started allergy immunotherapy. Her interest in treating allergies led her to medical school, where a rotation in Allergy & Immunology solidified her passion to practice in the specialty.
“I enjoyed the allergy and immunodeficiency cases and I am continually amazed by the quality of life improvements that the field can achieve.”
Dr. Rose completed medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin and her Internal Medicine residency at the University of Louisville. She received training in both adult and pediatric allergic and immunologic diseases during her Allergy & Immunology fellowship at Tulane University, in New Orleans. During both residency and fellowship, she researched the relationship between breast fed babies and peanut allergies through the U.S. Department of Agriculture. After fellowship, she served the Veterans Administration as an Allergist/Immunologist at the Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care System in New Orleans prior to moving to the Central Coast of California in 2015.
Dr. Rose moved to San Luis Obispo County with her husband, who grew up here in SLO County, and her two young daughters, to join and expand Allergy Partners. She enjoys running, hiking, golfing, traveling and spending time with her family and friends. She is excited by the challenge of treating patients with allergic and immunologic diseases and hopes to improve the quality of life of her patients, here on the Central Coast.
