Adrea Gist Theodore (MD, MPH) is a mom, a pediatrician, and a children’s book author from Durham, North Carolina. Growing up on Long Island, Adrea was the kind of girl who almost always had a book in her hand, a library card in her pocket, and a stack of books in the corner waiting to be read – or returned for more books! This love of reading, writing, and language has continued to grow throughout the years, culminating in the publication of her debut picture book, A History of Me.
Adrea’s education gradually brought her south, and she has lived in North Carolina since moving there to complete her medical training in pediatrics. She currently works in a local child advocacy center (CAC) with children being evaluated for abuse or neglect. Every child she sees there also has a story to tell.
