Adjunct Assistant Professor


Dr. Kellye Carver grew up in the Lone Star State, where she attended Texas A&M University for her undergraduate degree (Gig ‘em, Aggies!).  Raised in a military family at Ft. Hood, she was inspired to pursue psychology after witnessing the effects of September 11, 2001 on military communities.  She went on to earn her Doctorate from the University of North Texas.  While at UNT, she specialized in trauma, couples therapy, and aging/older adults.  Her research explored intersections of these areas, including grief/loss, reactions to trauma, aging, communication styles, and relationship satisfaction.  She completed her predoctoral internship at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center Consortium.  

Dr. Carver has worked in a variety of settings, including telehealth, trauma, couples/family therapy, neuropsychology, community living/hospice, student counseling, inpatient psychiatry, general mental health, pediatrics, and hematology/oncology.  More recently, she served military veterans and families at the North Texas VA Medical Center for almost eight years.

Outside of work, Kellye loves to travel.  Besides traveling extensively herself, she organizes faith-based group tours overseas for her church, friends and family. She also affectionately labels herself a “Bible nerd” and writes for the First 5 Bible study app from Proverbs 31 Ministries.  Kellye lives with her husband, Steve, and their rotund orange tabby, Garfield, in Milwaukee.  They’re loving Milwaukee summers, lakefront living, and German food.
