Kelsa L. Hovelson, RD, MSPA, PA-C

Kelsa L. Hovelson is a native of Minnesota, where she grew up in a small, southeastern town. She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Fitness from Colorado State University in Fort Collins, completed a dietetic internship in Boston, and became a Registered Dietitian (RD) in 2009.

For 5 years, she spent time working as an RD in Colorado and Minnesota in a variety of clinical settings. Desiring to increase her clinical knowledge in order to provide a higher level of care, she decided to go back to school. In 2017, she completed her Master of Physician Assistant Studies degree through Bethel University and joined Ear, Nose & Throat Specialty Care of Minnesota in 2018. Kelsa will continue to share her nutrition expertise in her PA-C career.
