Wife, mom, Doctor, Senator — Kelli Ward has a lot to be proud of. From humble beginnings as a coal miner's granddaughter in West Virginia, Dr. Kelli Ward is a graduate of Duke University, the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, and A.T. Still University. While in medical school, she met her husband Michael, an emergency physician who served over 33 years in the US Air Force and Air National Guard. In 1999 they moved to Lake Havasu City, Arizona where they built their family and their businesses.
Dr. Ward provided care to her community through her own private practice, Lakeview Family Healthcare with her mom, Dr. Lorraine Byrd for over 10 years. After selling her practice to a community health center, she began work in the emergency departments in Lake Havasu and Kingman.
Kelli entered politics by running for the Arizona State Senate in her effort to defeat Obamacare. After winning a tough primary election in 2012, she was unopposed when running for reelection in 2014. While serving in office, she continued to practice medicine in the emergency departments in Lake Havasu City and Kingman, Arizona.
Kelli is looking forward to representing you in the U.S. Senate
