Kelly Rudolph is an experienced marketing consultant with more than 20 years of experience creating and delivering revenue-generating solutions to physician-owned medical practices. She specializes in business development, lead generation and surgical volume analysis. Kelly previously served as the Regional Vice President for two Fortune 500 Public Companies, HealthSouth Corporation and Charter Medical Corporation. Kelly’s strengths include patient acquisition and education as well as practice management systems. She has been a guest speaker for the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) and partnered with Ethicon Endo-Surgery (a division of Johnson & Johnson) on growing private bariatric practices across the country. Kelly’s love for Naderma runs deep and personal. At the age of 35, Kelly was diagnosed with squamous cell cancer and underwent surgery and months of topical chemotherapy. According to Kelly’s physician, the cancer on her face was “something that should be found on an 80 year old man who spent years in the Pacific Ocean during WWII, not on a 35 year old.” Her battle ignited a passion for refining aging and repairing sun-damaged skin. After years of searching, Kelly discovered the benefits of NAD+, including its ability to increase skin cell energy. Knowing NAD+ should be in everyone’s daily skincare routine, Kelly partnered with her friend, Dr. Tom Lavin to create the NADERMA Method. Balancing science and nature, NAD+ is revolutionizing skin health and appearance.
