Sabrina Cuddy is a health educator specializing in women's health, currently working as a pregnancy expert at Pregistry.com.  She has many years of experience teaching prenatal health, childbirth, breastfeeding, and infant care as well as acting as a doula in the San Francisco Bay Area. She holds a BA in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley and a Master's of Public Health from San Jose State University.
 
Sabrina is also a mom (the last two just turned 18) and a costumer who performs onstage sometimes, works backstage a lot, and loves performing at the Dickens Christmas Fair in San Francisco.

After 35 years of misdiagnosis of symptoms, Sabrina was finally correctly diagnosed with HOCM and referred to the COE at Stanford where they did a quick trial of medications and 9 months later she had a myectomy.  The surgery was life changing and almost 4 years later she has very few symptoms.

Sabrina is very LGBTQIA friendly and respectful of all.  She hopes to use her skills as a health educator to run support group meetings to give back to the wonderful HCMA community and help people.
