She received her certification through the American Nurses Credentialing Center, an organization recognized as the gold standard in nursing. 

Pelfrey has been employed at Cabell Huntington since 2003. She earned her bachelor's and master's degrees from Marshall University School of Nursing. She graduated from the family nurse practitioner program and practiced as a primary care provider in Huntington for many years prior to joining the hospital.
