Through the diversity of the pediatric population during her residency, Dr. Broderick developed a special interest and aptitude for working with young children and children with special needs, including children with autism, ADHD, and developmental delays.
Dr. Broderick is originally from Brazil, but has considered New Jersey her home state since moving to the United States with her family as a teenager.
