I am committed to ensuring all our families receive patient-centered care, have access to a comprehensive multidiscipliary medical team, and feel like they have a medical home at the Fetal Care and Treatment Center. As a team leader I guide families through the challenges of prenatal diagnosis and planning for complex care for their children at UC Davis. I also love keeping in touch with our families as their children grow and thrive!
