Her interests and expertise in infant care are varied and far reaching. She is an excellent communicator and can speak on a wide range of topics. Her favorites include: breastfeeding, neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS or neonatal withdrawal from medications), prematurity, follow up for infants, and their development in and outside the NICU.
Aside from being a doctor, Joanna is also a mother. She has 2 young children ages 1 and 3. Being a mother changed her pediatric and neonatal practice for the better. She understands the joys and challenges of parenthood intimately and feels confident speaking and writing about them.
