Marti Bornstein, B.S., M.S., M.D.

Marti Bornstein, B.S., M.S., M.D.

Instructor

Dr. Marti Bornstein’s educational and career paths bring together a variety of interests and expertise. After obtaining her Bachelor of Science degree from Syracuse University, she was a research organic chemist for Bristol Myers. She then obtained her Masters degree and taught Earth Science, Biology, and Physics. In 1992 she decided to fulfill her lifelong dream to become a doctor and entered medical school at Upstate Medical University in New York. In 2000, she completed her residency training in Obstetrics & Gynecology at the University of Rochester. Choosing this speciality was a direct result of her own medical experiences as a patient with endometriosis, infertility, and a second trimester pregnancy loss. These challenges gave her an understanding of the patients’ perspective and as well as the compassion to make her an outstanding physician. Before retiring due to spine disability, she had delivered more than one thousand babies!

Working as a scientist, teacher, and physician makes Marti uniquely qualified as a Nested Instructor. Her commitment to helping women and future parents empower themselves and make healthy and informed care management decisions is her goal. The love of her craft, her zeal for patient empowerment through knowledge, and her outgoing, caring and compassionate personality are all evident in her role as a Nested Instructor and community liaison. Being a recipient of numerous scholarships and grants for all of her degrees, she feels that giving back to the community by educating others is just another way to “pay it forward.”

Marti is also on the Board of two charitable organizations: The Jean Axelrod Memorial Foundation(JAMF) and FIBUSPAM. Gratefully, the JAMF was able to assist Project Nido in travel expenses to Ecuador as well as fund roughly 75% of FIBUSPAM’s cervical cancer screening and treatment program for indigent Ecuadorian women.

Heather Ross, B.S., M.D.

Heather Ross, B.S., M.D.

Program Development Manager; Pediatric Outreach Director

Heather Ross is a physician with over 10 years of combined experience in pediatrics and obstetrics. Her passion for teaching began while supervising residents during her pediatric residency at the University of Rochester. While there, Heather utilized the “Biopsychosocial” model of medicine that was founded at the U of R. While healing from a spinal cord injury, Heather worked as the high risk pregnancy coordinator, patient care coordinator and continuing medical education provider for the physicians at Reiter, Hill, Johnson, & Nevin.

In this position, she increased screening and awareness of women’s mental health, particularly perinatal mood disorders. Heather also brought to the forefront an awareness of perinatal mood disorders in partners. Heather was featured in the December 2016 issue of Washington Parent magazine, where she was interviewed about postpartum mood disorders in men. Because of her years of experience in both pediatrics and women’s health, Heather was brought on as the Program Development Manager at Nested LLC. Heather created our Newborn Care Bootcamp and integrated the “Biopsychosocial” model into the educational content of our classes. Through our bootcamp courses, she has empowered parents to become active participants in their overall health, such that intervening at this early phase fosters the development of healthy children and families.

Heather has also taken an active role in her time at Nested as Lead Teacher and trained other instructors. Heather was an integral part of Nested’s combined medical mission “Project Nido” traveling with FIBUSPAM and Trek Coalition to the Chimborazo Province of Ecuador to serve more than 800 indigenous patients in a 5 day period. This was the first time the medical mission had a Pediatrician on board. “It was amazing.”

Despite moving to Syracuse, NY in June of 2018 to finish her last year of her pediatric residency, Heather remains dedicated to our Nested domestic and international mission. Heather hopes to return to Ecuador in the near future. Her new focus at Nested will be pediatric outreach and consultation to help foster education and strengthen our partnerships with the community. This will improve the lives of children and their families.

Jessica Campbell, BS, BSN, WHNP-BC

Instructor

Jessica Campbell’s passion for healthcare began during her undergraduate education in 2004 at Radford University, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and minored in Sociology. This laid the groundwork for understanding how socialization plays an integral role in providing and receiving healthcare, as well as the need for compassion in counseling and
education.

In 2010, after working in various aspects of women’s healthcare, Jessica completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the University of Miami. She then went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Nursing in 2012 from Virginia Commonwealth University, specializing in Women’s Health. The practical experience, first as a medical assistant, then as a registered nurse, and currently as a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner, affords Jessica a strong medical knowledge base and has shaped her holistic approach to patient care.

Over the last several years she focused on providing OB/GYN care to refugees and the underserved in the city of Baltimore. However, she considers being a mother and raising her son Remi to be her greatest achievement.

Jessica recently moved back home to the DC area and is joining the practice of Reiter, Hill, Johnson, and Nevin as a Nurse Practitioner in July. She is thrilled to become a part of our Nested family and have the opportunity to educate couples during this exciting part of their life’s journey.
