Dr. Jill Garripoli Pedalino is an award-winning pediatrician, author, keynote speaker, and owner of Healthy Kids Pediatrics in New Jersey.
While pursuing her Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and Biology and graduating with honors from Bucknell University, she enjoyed breaking a few bones (including a few of her own) as captain of the women's rugby team. She obtained her degree in Osteopathic Medicine from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and completed her pediatric specialty training at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
"Dr. Jill," as she is affectionately called by her patients, has been voted one of New Jersey's Top Docs and Favorite Kids' Docs by NJ Family Magazine for the past 10 years.
When she's not caring for her patients, posting helpful parenting articles, writing inspirational children's books, or delivering impactful keynote presentations, Dr. Jill enjoys hiking, biking, and kayaking with her family as well as crushing a challenging crossword puzzle with a nice cup of tea at their condo in Costa Rica.
She works hard to be a role model for her patients and knows she's in the right profession when a parent tells her, “Doctor Jill, you make a difference.”
