Administrative Director, Women’s Services
Pediatric nurse navigator
With a background in pediatric nursing here at RMHC, Lisa focuses her expertise on the medically complicated pediatric patient population. She acts as a point person in the hospital for patients and their families, navigating pediatric patients’ care throughout the hospital. This can include surgical visits or coming in to meet with a specialist in a clinic. She can coordinate multiple appointments, connect families with available resources and answer any questions that may arise. Her primary goal is to make RMHC a caring, friendly and easier place to navigate.
Catherine works with the Center for Maternal/Fetal Health team as our board-certified genetic counselor and has had extensive experience working in other healthcare organizations in Nebraska and California. She collaborates with providers to coordinate genetic evaluation pre-conceptually, during pregnancy or in the neonatal period and helps providers and families navigate the often complicated arena of genetic diagnosis. Once a diagnosis is made, she offers individualized education and support to families to help understand future implications.
Jennifer Harned Adams, PhD
Clinical health psychologist
Dr. Adams is a clinical health psychologist with a specialty in women's reproductive health. She uses her expertise from across the reproductive health continuum—fertility, pregnancy and postpartum—to provide knowledgeable and compassionate support to families coping with complex prenatal diagnosis, complicated pregnancies, healthcare decision making, life in the NICU and preparing for life at home. She collaborates with the medical team to care for the whole family. As families prepare to transition home, she works with families to help them identify and connect with support in their local communities.
