Longitudinal Coaches

  • Associate Professor of Clinical Pediatrics (Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine); Medical Director, Yale New Haven Children's Hospital NICU, Pediatrics; Director, NICU Transport Program

    I started my medical career after spending many years as a Child Neurology nurse.  Pediatrics was always my first love but I was thrilled when I discovered the enormous reward in taking care of critically ill newborns in the Neonatal Intensive Care unit.  When I look in an incubator, I see potential for healing even in the sickest children and I am incredibly grateful to be part of a team dedicated to the care of this vulnerable group of children.
