Cara Natterson

Cara Natterson is a pediatrician, consultant, and award-winning author. She grew up in Los Angeles, dreaming of helping others. After medical school and training to be a pediatrician, she returned to her hometown where she worked as a primary care doctor. Her experiences were extraordinary as she learned first hand how difficult it can be for parents to navigate all of the information (good and bad) thrust at them. That's when Cara started writing books. At first she focused on medical issues, but over time her writing shifted to the most common fears and misconceptions about pediatric health. Working on "The Care and Keeping of You" series has been a career highlight. With more than 5 million copies sold, these books speak directly to tweens and teens, much like Cara used to do in the office. They provide important information about growing up without creating anxiety. Today, Cara is a leading consultant and speaker in the tween health space. Cara doesn't just know this topic, she lives it: she has a 12-year old daughter and an 10-year old son keeping it real. She graduated from Harvard College and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
