Meet Our Staff

Suzanne Metelsky,

Office Manager

Year 2014 marks my Quarter Century Anniversary with University Hospitals.  I have enjoyed working in pediatrics and now have the opportunity to serve the next generation of the families I have come to know.  I have three grown children/stepchildren of my own and spend my free time at home in the country or traveling.

Tina Lee,


I have been working with Dr. Romero for the past nine years and love every minute of it!  I'm the mother of three wonderful children and two cats.  I enjoy spending time with my family and husband of 17 years.

Jennifer Vasi,

Medical Assistant II

I am 33 years old, have been married for 7 years, and have a 15 year old son and a baby on the way.  I've been in pediatrics for about one year.  In my spare time I am an extreme couponer.

Jamie Figula,


I have lived in Elyria all my life.  I have been in the medical reception field for over 14 years, many of them with Drs. Hansford and Romero.  One thing I've learned through the years is that pediatrics is the BEST practice to be involved with.  I am the mother of two children, Deric and Emma.
