From Haverhill to Hollywood

Nurse by trade, city native finds success in writing

(Continued)

When they met, Kelley remarked on Struck’s New England roots. Kelley is a native of Maine who moved west years ago, settling into drama production.

Struck took the job as a writer for Kelley’s drama series “Monday Mornings,’’ a medical drama based on a book by Sanjay Gupta, M.D., that first aired on TNT in February 2013. Gupta is the chief medical correspondent for CNN. The show is centered on a fictional hospital’s mortality conferences, in which surgeons grill each other with no outside witnesses and holding back no arguments.

Struck is still a nurse at heart, but her writing career allows her no time to work in the health field. But she still exercises her medical expertise when helping create a story for the next episode of “Monday Mornings.’’
