She is a Registered Dietitian (RD) with 11 years of experience in neonatal and pediatric nutrition. Theresa has conducted research in a number of areas related to the nutrition care of the high-risk infant, including the impact of a Registered Dietitian in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) setting on the adequacy of parenteral nutrition administration and the timeliness of the initiation of enteral nutrition, the use of post-discharge formulas in low birth weight (LBW) infants after discharge from the NICU, and the adequacy of vitamin D intake in LBW infants. Her doctoral work looked at the impact of standardized feeding guidelines for low birth weight infants on enteral nutrition administration, growth, and bone and liver health and was recently published in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition.
