Dr. Helmly wanted to study medicine from an early age. While running Division 1 Cross Country and Track and Field at the University of Florida, she graduated with a degree in Biology. She attended Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg, VA, and then went on to complete her residency in Family Medicine at East Tennessee State University in Bristol, TN.

Dr. Helmly is board certified in Family Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment. After graduating residency, she took her love for teaching into a career in academic medicine by joining the faculty at ETSU Bristol, where she stayed for four years. She became the Director of Osteopathic Education, Associate Program Director and then Program Director for the residency program before moving to Fredericksburg, VA in April of 2022 with her family.

In her free time she enjoys running, traveling, cooking, baking, and spending time with her two daughters and husband.

"Dr. Helmly spends more time listening then any doctor I have ever seen. She asks questions and listens to the answers."
"New patient appointment- extremely pleased with Dr. Hassan and staff at Mary Washington Healthcare. Respectful, kind, thoughtful and felt extremely comfortable in her care."
