Kristen Dooher, RN, BSN

Hi, I'm Kristen, the Owner of Westwood IV Therapy! I've worked as a traveling nurse at small hospitals and, for the past decade, as an ER nurse at a large Boston hospital. I'm a local mom of two active and adorable boys and have been a nurse since 2004. 

 

As a nurse, I know how precious life is. But when Covid hit, I had an even more heightened awareness of how tenuous life is as well. As hospitals became overwhelmed, I was spending more and more time away from my family. And I realized that my own life needed to change. With unwavering support from my husband, Joe, and from Dr. Chak Reddy, I have opened Westwood IV therapy, and am charting a new course in proactive nursing and wellness.

 

The combination of Eastern and Western medicine has done wonders for my own health over the years. When the mind, body, and soul are nurtured, we thrive. The hydration therapies offered at Westwood IV help to keep our bodies in top form. I hope you will try one of our therapies as the beginning of your own journey towards total health and wellness.

Beth Ann Mee, RN, BSN

Hi, I’m Beth! I started my nursing career after I graduated with my Bachelors in Science Degree from Regis College in 2008. I found a passion in EMS and critical care medicine and decided to blend the two and currently work as a critical care flight nurse in the Boston area. 

 

Throughout the years of caring for sick patients, I have tried to focus on ways to improve my mind, body, and soul. IV hydration became an interest when I realized there was a way to improve overall health and wellness with safe, effective treatments in a comfortable and relaxing setting. 

 

In addition to the love I have taking care of patients, I am a wife and a mom to two young boys, a cat, and a turtle. I also enjoy running, my peloton, reading and spending time in my garden. 

Jenny Persechini, RN, BSN

Hi! I'm Jenny, and I have been a Registered Nurse for 12 years. I am a Certified Pediatric Nurse and have mainly worked with children of all ages up to young adults in the pediatric inpatient unit at Mass General Hospital for Children. During Covid, I also cared for adults when our floor was changed to an adult Covid floor to help accommodate all the sick patients requiring hospital care. 

 

Staying healthy, spending time with my family, and helping others as a Nurse is what drives me. I heard of Westwood IV Therapy when my husband played in a golf tournament, and Westwood IV was there doing vitamin infusions. He came home to tell me about it, and I was eager to learn more. I realized that as a Nurse, there was a way to help improve patients' overall health and wellness safely with IV hydration in the comfort of their homes, and I knew I needed to join this team of wonderful Nurses. 

 

I have a wonderful husband, three beautiful little children, and a large dog. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family. I also love working out and running. I look forward to helping you feel your best!

Caitlyn Teresi, NP

Hi everyone! I'm Caitlyn. I am a certified family nurse practitioner who believes in a holistic approach to treating patients. With over eight years of experience in various healthcare settings, including working with patients in physical rehabilitation and surgical trauma ICU, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and skills. Over the last three years, I have worked in family practice, pediatrics, and an infusion clinic. I am committed to providing high-quality care that addresses not just the physical but my patients' emotional and mental well-being.

 

I'm thrilled to start my journey with Westwood IV and make patients' lives easier by providing care in the comfort of their own homes!

Andrea Fede, MSN, RN

Hi everyone! I am a Registered Nurse with 17+ years of experience, with a Masters Degree in Health Care Administration. My background is mostly in Neonatal & Pediatric critical care. I’ve had the opportunity to work in both large and small hospitals in NYC, Boston, and around the country as a travel RN. 

In 2016 I moved to the Boston area to become the Director of Nursing for the Special Care Nursery, Inpatient Pediatrics, and Child life therapy at Newton Wellesley Hospital. During the pandemic I left the hospital setting to purse an improved work/life balance. 

I’m currently the Associate Director of Primary Care for a local Health Care System which has shifted my focus from critical care to preventative care. I believe IV hydration is a great way to improve overall health
and support preventative wellness!   

I live in Westwood and am a mom of a busy toddler, cat, and a fish! I enjoy traveling, great food, and quality time with friends and family.

Biz , RN, BSN

Hi, I’m Biz! Despite being a New Jersey native, I have spent the greater part of 10 years living and working in Boston. I graduated from Boston University with bachelors degrees in biology and health science before subsequently earning my BSN through Northeastern University. 

 

After returning to NJ for a few years, I moved back to Boston full time during the pandemic and have been working full-time as an ER/trauma nurse in a busy Boston hospital since 2021. Prior to the pandemic, I had the privilege of attending numerous medical mission trips to the Dominican Republic, providing care to thousands of people in rural villages who would otherwise have zero access to healthcare. In addition to being humbled beyond words, these trips led me to realize the magnitude of importance that preventative and holistic wellness have on one’s longevity. 

 

We live in a fast-paced society where prioritizing wellness is often challenging, which led me to pursue a role where I can positively impact people outside the confines of a hospital. I strongly believe that we are the best versions of ourselves when consistently healthy and energized, leading to an overall improvement in quality of life. When not at work I can be found parked in a beach chair with a book, on the slopes or horizontal on the couch with my guilty pleasure — Bravo. I look forward to being part of your wellness journey!

Gina Ubertini, RN, BSN

Hi! I'm Gina, and I've been a registered nurse for about 7 years. I am a CCRN, and work with both children and adults who have congenital heart disease at Boston Children's Hospital in the Cardiac ICU. I've also worked as a home care nurse treating children with trach and Gtube dependence.

 

I am a huge proponent of self care, and spend most of my free time being active. I love working out, making smoothies, and doing all things outdoors with my dog, Maverick. I am also a true-crime junkie and beach bum!
