About the Author

Dr. Kelly Zachary-Arnold has spent most of her life in the medical field. Through the last of her career, she found her calling in forensic medicine, focusing on working with the wounded warriors coming home from the war with PTSD. Dr. Zachary-Arnold has an immense love and respect for our troops, as she spent her life growing up as a Navy Brat and would then marry retired Naval Officer, Dr. Ron Arnold. Between the two of them, they have six children.

Kelly was raised in church by her beloved mother, the church pianist. She began Kelly’s piano lessons at an early age. This skill would lead her to compete in the Miss America Pageant System, but Kelly’s true joy came from playing the piano in the church with her mother. This would lead to a close, loving relationship with Pastors Dr. Jerry and Ann Price. As a teenager, Kelly played for the choir, whom Pastor Jerry Price led, and playing for specials that Pastors Jerry and Ann Price sang.

It was this deeply-rooted Christianity that would see Dr. Kelly Zachary-Arnold walking through the fire, in the biggest fight for her life.
