Dr. Pauli is Professor and Chief of the Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) Division in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Penn State Health, Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. She is originally from Newtown, PA (Bucks County), but has called Central PA her home for 23 years. She graduated from Stanford University with a B.A.S. in English and Biology, where she also was a member of both the Stanford Ballet as well as the women’s rugby team. She did her medical school, obstetrics and gynecology residency, and fellowship training at the Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, PA and is proud to have been the inaugural MFM fellow. Since joining the staff of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department, she has served as Medical Director of Labor and Delivery (2015-July 2023) and Co-Director of the Penn State Complex Fetal Care Center (formerly the Perinatal Program, 2013-present). She served as part of the Children’s Hospital Expansion Work Group, which helped in the design, build, and move to the new Women and Babies Center to the Penn State Children’s Hospital. She served as the obstetrical leader at HMC during the COVID-19 pandemic, working on policy development, education, community outreach, and in person patient care. She is currently a member of the Ob/Gyn Quality Committee, the Unit Accountable Care Team for the Women’s Health Unit, Ob/Gyn Residency Clinical Competency Committee, the Ob/Gyn Promotion and Tenure Committee, and the Delivery Room Committee. Dr. Pauli has stayed at Penn State in large part due to her love of teaching and evidence-based medicine, and enjoys teaching all levels of trainees-medical and PA students, residents, and fellows in the “classroom,” during simulation sessions, as well as during patient care. Her research has focused on clinical obstetrics, including hypertension, obesity, diabetes, and quality initiatives on Labor and Delivery. Another favorite part of academic medicine for her is the opportunity to write (using those English major skills) editorials, commentaries, reviews and updates for several national journals. However, at the end of the day, Dr Pauli’s true love will always be delivering babies, particularly those of her high-risk patients, and she takes every opportunity to be in the delivery room or operating room she can.
