Entonces, ella habla español y puede asistirle con sus preguntas sobre la salud de los niños. She is a pediatric nursing clinical professor at Arizona State University and works with undergraduate and master's level nursing students.

From her days as an Early Intervention nurse to her time as a women's health expert and an inpatient postpartum nurse, rest assured that Kayla is here to help you feel at ease knowing your child is truly in good hands.
