Meet Our Team

Sheila Kelly, MS, RDN, President and Founder

Sheila started Skelly Skills to help health professionals achieve career fulfillment through continuing education that's relevant, practical and of immediate benefit. Sheila's background includes stints in private practice, as a CDCES overseeing a diabetes education program, clinical dietitian, clinical nutrition manager, and bilingual public health nutritionist.
Later, she moved to the digital space, serving as Director and Senior Director of Product Development at several wellness technology companies. She's a co-inventor on two behavior change technology patents. She's also done substantial media work, including appearances on CNN Headline News, CNN Financial News, Good Day New York, Glamour, Vogue and many others. In recent years, she's become very interested in functional and integrative nutrition, and see these as keys to the future success of our profession. Sheila and her husband, Gary, have two wonderful boys!

Sara Garbin, MS, RDN, LDN, Nutrition Content and Communications Manager

Sara received her undergraduate degree in Dietetics from the University of Connecticut and her Master’s degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport. Sara has worked in diabetes, prediabetes and chronic disease counseling for Livongo, and also in private practice and early intervention. She understands the struggle we all face as practitioners to balance pursuing continuing education while “doing it all” as a working parent. Her emphasis on creating practical, immediately-usable courses reflects that understanding. In creating our newest CE courses and webinars, she hopes to share cutting-edge nutrition and behavior change knowledge with all our customers. Sara lives in the Pittsburgh, PA Metro Area with her husband, two children, and a dog.
