About Dr. Sell

Dr. Sell grew up at the Jersey Shore, in Asbury Park, NJ. After attending high school at St. Rose in Belmar, she traveled to North Carolina and received her bachelors degree with honors from Duke University. She went on to obtain her medical degree from Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, and trained in pediatrics at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. She was going to start her developmental fellowship in Atlanta, but life threw her a curveball with the birth of her first child, and she had to put her dream aside. Dr. Sell returned to the Jersey Shore to work in general pediatrics for a few years as she started her family and planted roots back in the shore community she grew up in. However, Dr. Sell's passion for working with children with special health care needs led her to keep looking,and she completed fellowship training in developmental and behavioral pediatrics at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Dr. Sell is board certified in pediatrics, and sub-specialty board certified in developmental-behavioral pediatrics. She is a member of several professional societies, including the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Society of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. She was a faculty member and attending physician in the Department of Pediatrics at The Unterberg Children's Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center and Drexel University School of Medicine. Dr. Sell has written on developmental-behavioral pediatric subjects, including an original research article on autism spectrum disorders published in a peer reviewed journal (DHJO) and presented at a national meeting (APHA 2011). She has coauthored a textbook chapter on ADHD (Children with Disabilities) and has participated in creating the teaching curriculum for autism developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She has mentored residents in their IRB approved research projects and recently presented a poster on autism screening at the Barnabas Health Quality Fair (2014). She opened her private practice in 2015 and continues to consult with local school districts and community organizations.  
 She is also mother to two boys and a little girl and loves to spend time just watching her children play and grow.
