However, away from Sickbay, she is a reflective, quiet soul who seeks friendship, yet not boistrousness necessarily.

Personal History Born by the old Earth calendar on March 21, 2337, Keliyn spent the first sixteen years of her life mostly aboard her family's cargo ship, running freight for various civilian Federation interests. She grew up well-loved, but found herself with not much time to herself--in addition to her immediate family, the ship hosted a number of extended relatives as well. As a consequence of this, Keliyn found self-expression through dance, and in 2353, got a scholarship to Earth's Juliard School in New York City.

After three years at Juliard, Keliyn grew tired of the highly-focused, competitive nature of the program; though she had significant skill, she found coriography more enjoyable than the actual dancing. She worked odd jobs for a few years, but after earning United Earth--and thus, Federation--citizenship, she decided to apply for Starfleet Academy. Her test scores had always been high, and she was accepted into Starfleet's medical program in 2359 at age 22.

Keliyn went through Starfleet's eight-year medical program, and while her courses were not easy, she did get good marks. A personal highlight of this period was her relationship with a fellow medical student, an Andorian female, Tahl. Regrettably, their relationship did not survive graduation, although looking back on it, Keliyn suspects that if they had been posted to the same ship, it might have lasted.

Graduating in 2367, Keliyn spent two years aboard the USS Tavener, a Miranda-class light cruiser. When the Cardassians withdrew from Bajor, Keliyn requested for a transfer to Deep Space nine--despite being a Bajoran, she had never seen her homeworld. Serving on the station for two years, she saw much more than she could have wished, particularly as the Federation assisted in the rebuilding of Bajoran infrastructure and institutions.

Needing a change of scene, Keliyn requested a deep space exploratory posting near the end of 2370, and landed aboard the Ticonderoga. She was made CMO in 2371, and unexpectedly was reunited with her adopted sister, Amanda Richardson, an Ensign in Operations.
