Business Review


"When we were first referred to Mary, Jacob was only two months old and we were terrified that he would need to wear a helmet and have developmental delays. All of our fears were put to rest after just one session with Mary. She was able to explain what Jacob was feeling and how his muscle tightness contributed to his head becoming flat. She walked us through a series of stretches that we should do daily. And best of all, she gave us invaluable guidance on how to build Jacob’s tummy time tolerance. Now after 2 months of following the program Jacob’s head flatness is nearly resolved (yay, no helmet!) and he can do 6 consecutive minutes of tummy time without any props." - Vicki


“I first met Mary Vanesko the day she was brought on as our NICU subject matter ex- pert. At the time I had no idea how much she would teach me and help me prepare for my work as a therapist in the NICU. Through the course of her time at University of Southern California Verdugo Hills Hospital Mary did a phenomenal amount to prepare therapists, management, designers & architects, nurses, clinical informatics and so on, on the intricacies of everything a NICU needed to be built, opened and successful.Mary spent countless hours researching dozens of components required to create a thriving NICU from the lighting and sound levels to infant positioning aids to organizing in-services on various components of the NICU. She was consistently up on the most recent research which she passed on to us in a palatable, easy to understand way. Mary taught in small groups and even one on one to ensure a solid understanding of the information. She provided articles, websites, books, tests/quizzes and consistently encouraged continued reading and study outside of training time. Incorporation of what we had been taught into hands-on practice positioning or massaging and infant drove home all she had taught.Mary’s role in the creation and opening of our NICU was paramount. With her approach- able style and kind heart it may be that, only after she left did we fully recognize all she had done to prepare us for caring for our tiniest and most fragile population. Mary is a carpenter and she has built us an arc! Thank you Mary for all you have done – you are deeply appreciated.” ~ Alyssa Levy M.S.
