  • Sarah Davenport

    Sarah Davenport, MD

    PGY6

    Sarah is originally from Chatham, MA but has lived up and down the East Coast with short forays into California and Arizona for variety. She’s wanted to be a pediatrician since she was 4 years old and followed that dream to Smith College and then on to Thomas Jefferson University. After getting her MD, she went to Emory University in Atlanta for residency where she first fell in love with Neonatology! New England eventually called her home to Cape Cod where she was Chief Pediatric Hospitalist before becoming Chief of Pediatric at Landmark Medical Center. She was lucky enough to join the amazing team at UMass for Neonatology fellowship, where she is also pursuing her Masters of Science in Clinical Investigation and her interests in medical education. Sarah’s research centers around nutrition and growth; she is conducting a prospective study on the effect of donor milk exposure on immune function as well as a QI studies about growth failure and early initiation of feeds. When not in the NICU, she lives in the country with her husband Majd, their fur kids Zuza (woof!) and Luna (meow!) where they are pursuing several home improvements with varying degrees of success. Sarah is passionate about camping and hiking in the amazing scenery of New England, baking, singing wherever possible, knitting, reading, wine, and traveling internationally at every opportunity!

  • Megan Horgan

    Megan Horgan, MD

    PGY6

    Megan is a Worcester native! She ventured east to Boston University (Go Terriers!) for her bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering before returning home to Worcester to attend the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where she has remained ever since. She completed her pediatric residency, as well as a chief residency year, at UMass before deciding to stay put for her fellowship in Neonatology. Megan has an interest in clinical research and is completing her Masters of Science in Clinical Investigation during her fellowship. She has been involved with multiple projects with the NICU throughout her training to date, including a retrospective observational study on hospital utilization of NICU patients after discharge in pediatric residency. She is currently invested in both clinical research and quality improvement initiatives involving respiratory management and outcomes; she is involved with the Massachusetts NeoQIC Respiratory Care Collaborative and is currently conducting a randomized control trial evaluating best practice for weaning oxygen in premature infants and a QI study of early selective surfactant administration. Outside of the NICU, Megan and her husband, Ryan, have two pups, Norbert and Neville, who are spoiled rotten.

  • Kirsti Martin

    Kirsti Martin, MD

    PGY5

    Kirsti grew up in sunny Naples, Florida prior to venturing to Princeton University in New Jersey for undergraduate studies. She completed her senior thesis on the effect of aerobic exercise on stress and mood. After this, she returned to Florida for medical school at the University of Florida (Go Gators!), where she was active in the Medical Student Section of the American Medical Association and served on the admissions committee. She then moved to back to the northeast for Pediatrics Residency at UMass, where she was involved in multiple aspects of medical student education and conducted research on the effect of screen time on recovery after concussions. She chose to stay at UMass for Neonatology Fellowship because of the talented, close-knit group of educators in the NICU. Within neonatology, she is interested in delivery room stabilization, palliative care, and resident education in the NICU. Outside of the NICU, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Chris, and dog, Zoe. She enjoys cooking, baking, spinning on her Peloton bike, New England craft beer, and skiing.
