Ashley Rudnick from Boca VIPediatrics began her career in entertainment with The Walt Disney Company, but after 10 years of performing, writing and directing she joined her husband at his pediatric practice in Boca Raton. For the past two years they’ve organized a toy collection drive for Little Smiles, but this year our partnership grew even stronger.

Little Smiles works to keep a strong group of seasoned Little Smiles volunteers active in each of the hospitals it serves through its ‘Ambassador’ program. These volunteers go through special training, assemble a small volunteer team and work with nurses and other hospital staff to create fun activities throughout the year. They also help deliver gifts and other wish fulfillment to nurses, so we can quickly create much needed smiles. Ashley was recently named Little Smiles Ambassador for Boca West Hospital, and we couldn’t be more thrilled! Welcome aboard, Ashley!
