Dr. Ashley Sens and Dr. Mathew L. Fruzza and Dr. Ashley Sens have joined Woodland Healthcare as pediatricians, and Vi Dam-Pearson has been hired as a nurse practitioner.

Sens received her medical degree from the University of Iowa’s Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City. She completed her pediatrics internship and residency at Dartmouth Medical School in Hanover, N.H., at Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth.

Prior to joining Woodland Healthcare, Sens was a staff pediatrician at Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas and an assistant professor of pediatrics at Texas A&M School of Medicine. She is board-certified in pediatrics.

“I have a family-centered and family-directed approach to pediatric care,” Sens said. “I enjoy defining what health means to families and helping families achieve those goals.”

Sens will be seeing patients at the Davis Medical Office, 2330 W. Covell Blvd., Davis.

Fruzza received his medical degree from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Erie, Pa. He completed his pediatrics internship and residency at UC San Francisco and at Children’s Hospital Central California in Fresno. Prior to joining Woodland Healthcare, Fruzza was a general pediatrician at Vista Community Clinic in Oceanside. He is board-certified in pediatrics.

“I became a pediatrician because I enjoy interacting with children and hope to create a lasting impact on their development and well-being,” Fruzza said.

He will be seeing patients at the Woodland Medical Office, 632 W. Gibson Road in Woodland.

Dam-Pearson also will see patients at the Woodland office. She received her bachelor’s degree in biological sciences at UC Davis and her registered nurse, master of nursing and family nurse practitioner degrees from Samuel Merritt University.

Prior to joining Woodland Healthcare, Dam-Pearson was a family nurse practitioner at Sacramento Family Medical Center.

“My focus is to provide compassionate and quality care to people of all ages,” she said. “I promote prevention and patient education in order to encourage active participation by my patients and their families, in hopes of achieving better health outcomes.”
