Get to Know Martha Gooldy Garcia
Prior to joining the Youth Clinic, Martha worked with the Women, Infants and Children Program for 23 years. During that time, she also consulted with various agencies to provide in home nutrition support to children 0 – 21 with special medical needs and developmental challenges.
Outside of work, Martha enjoys cooking and eating, reading, snowboarding, and spending time with her family. Her favorite part about working with her patients is seeing the joy in parents’ faces as they look at their newborns, and helping kids and families get excited about trying new foods and healthy eating. She loves building relationships with the kids and families through the years.
“The lactation nurses are wonderful! We saw two different educators and both are extremely knowledgeable, supportive, compassionate and amazing. If it weren’t for them, I would have given up on breastfeeding!”
