A Unique Approach
In her own words, from Dr. Snider:
“I was first introduced to healthcare by my mother, an intensive-care nurse, who continues to help patients and families face some of their worst days. Growing up, I vividly remember my mother consistently working beyond the call-of-duty to make sure the care she provided was comprehensive and detailed. My mother also introduced me to medical missions. In high school, she brought me to remote areas of Mexico to help set up rural clinics for the local population. Being a part of bringing healthcare to these people was incredibly fulfilling, and my calling to continue to care for people and come alongside them during their medical journey was cultivated. I have a passion to make new, create, restore and reform. While most surgeons have the job of cutting out and taking away, I am blessed with the opportunity to rebuild, to recreate, to enhance. I also have a passion for children, and for creating an environment that allows kids to be themselves and encourages their strengths. Some children are born different from their peers. If that is your child, I want to be there for you in the uncertainty and in the times that may be hardest. I want to bring positive change to your lives and help your child be proud of who they were created to be. I want to help every child live their fullest life.”
