I was was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I attended Yale University, and then the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. After 10 years on the East Coast, I decided to return to my roots and completed my residency in pediatrics at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. I then stayed on for a year after as Chief Resident, and then joined the thriving pediatric community of Santa Monica, where I have been practicing for 13 years. I am currently in private practice at Morningside Pediatrics. I am a member of the Los Angeles Pediatric Society, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and am on staff at St. John’s Health Center, and UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center. I live with my husband, Gerry, our twins, Connor and Fiona, and our dog, Jack, just a mile from where I grew up. In my free time you can find me cheering Connor on at the baseball field, driving Fiona to gymnastics, walking Jack, or doing crossword puzzles.
Here at jennarobertsmd.com, my goal is to provide parents with tips on all things baby, from car seats and high chairs, to fevers and colds. It should be a place parents can come to research how to start solid foods and help their baby sleep. Parenting is so difficult these days with all the information coming and going from all walks of life. I want to help make it just a little easier.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
Jenna Roberts, MD, FAAP
