“Having a sick newborn is incredibly traumatic to a family and requires the support of a multidisciplinary team. I feel so privileged to provide compassionate care to families through this stressful time and to collaborate with the entire neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) team to help each infant have the best outcome possible. With advancements in technology, it’s exciting to watch infants, who previously wouldn't have survived, be able to be discharged from the hospital and then go on to thrive and lead happy, healthy lives.”

Dr. Gooding is board certified in both general pediatrics and neonatal-perinatal medicine. She specializes in neonatal critical care medicine with a clinical focus on optimizing outcomes in extremely preterm infants, which is a baby born before the 28th week of gestation. She has additional interests in breastfeeding and nutrition, oral feeding difficulties and chronic lung disease.

Dr. Gooding has won an Atrium Health Gold Touchstone Award, a DAISY Team Award and is a team member of the Atrium Health neonatal extremely preterm infant, comfort care and developmental committees.

She is currently collaborating on a chronic lung disease (BPD) project in conjunction with the Atrium Health Pulmonology Department to identify patients and improve outcomes in this population. She is also involved in the inhaled surfactant study as a sub-investigator in the Atrium Health Levine Children’s Hospital NICU.

Dr. Gooding has a commitment to quality improvement and has been the project co-leader and physician co-champion on several projects in the Atrium Health Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) that have successfully achieved target outcome metrics, which she presented to colleagues nationally.

Dr. Gooding received her medical degree at Eastern Virginia Medical School. She completed her pediatrics residency at Prisma Health, formerly known as Greenville Hospital System University Medical Center, and a fellowship in neonatal-perinatal medicine at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Health.

Dr. Gooding is married with 2 children. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, reading, traveling to new places and trying new restaurants.
