Meet Katie Vesper

As a teacher, Katie Vesper always looks after our kids. When her own child, Addie, was born six weeks early, it was Dr. Cem Omay’s and nurse Teresa Tonzola’s turn to look after both of them. Katie is always in control of her class, but having her newborn in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) brought a sense of helplessness. Fortunately, Katie and her baby were at the Katena Center for Mother and Child in Denville. The team not only gave Addie the care she needed, but also gave Katie constant updates on Addie’s condition and prepared her for home.
