Melessa Hirschhorn

RN

Nurse
Nature lover and proud cheerleader at my children's events

Melessa Hirschhorn is a nurse who cares for children with neurological conditions requiring surgery. She assists doctors, and works with patients and families before and after surgery, educating them on the specific condition and answering their questions.

Hirschhorn earned her bachelor's degree from the San Diego State University School of Nursing. In her free time, she enjoys baking and being with her family.

Having a child with a neurosurgical condition is stressful, and my goal is to make it easier for our families to manage.
