The Vascular Birthmarks Foundation

Dr. Linda Rozell-Shannon, PhD President and Founder

VBF is proud to have Corinne Barinaga, our Family Services Director, available to answer emails concerning family advocacy, treatment questions, or physician referral.

Corinne Barinaga has a BA in Communications and Advertising. She lives in the Seattle, Washington area with her husband and their four boys. Their son, Nicholas, had a large segmental hemangioma. Corinne’s quest to learn about her son’s condition resulted in her becoming the manager of the MSN Vascular Birthmarks Support Group.

Corinne generously donates her time to working with families on an individual basis to address their specific needs. She is a staunch advocate for parents. Her mission is to educate the public and physicians about the latest information concerning the diagnosis and management of vascular birthmarks. She is available to answer your questions and direct you to the appropriate physician and family resources.
