Dr. Hessel is a long-term veteran at MCC, now overseeing all pediatric care for the clinics. She has been raised and fully educated in the Bay Area. She devotes her full-time professional expertise to the under-served children of Marin County, often emphasizing the value of literacy and education by promoting the Reach Out and Read program and giving books to her young patients. At the same time she supports her own community as a parent volunteer with Heads Up, the San Rafael City Schools Foundation.
Her view from the clinic says it all: “I feel extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to work at a clinic that serves such a richly diverse patient population. I enjoy working with families to improve their children’s health as well as the health and well- being of our community.”
Dr. Hessel has a MD from the University of California San Francisco and completed her residency in pediatrics at UCSF. She is Board Certified in Pediatrics.
