Dr. DePalma is board certified in pediatrics and a certified lactation consultant. Prior to joining Esse Health, she worked as a pediatric hospitalist with Washington University. While there she cared for infants, children and teens in a variety of settings including the emergency room, newborn nursery, and inpatient units. Dr. DePalma also served as the director of the newborn nursery at Missouri Baptist Medical Center.


Dr. DePalma lives in Webster Groves with her husband and their two children. She loves that her job is helping kids and their parents because she knows that being a parent is a really hard job! (and sometimes being a kid is too). In her free time she loves to bake, sew, cuddle with her cat and plan her family’s next trip to Disney World.
