About me

My favorite part of my job is listening to my patients. I genuinely care about seeing them healthy by fulfilling their needs. When patients are more informed about their health, their well-being is significantly improved. When creating a custom care plan for them, I listen and take their concerns and opinions into consideration. A great day for me is when I've resolved every health problem a patient has and they feel well once again. At Sanitas, I like the continued focus on prevention, promotion and education.

Born in Camaguey, Cuba, I completed medical school there and practiced medicine for a few years before choosing to move to the U.S. to become a family nurse practitioner. I have family in the U.S., but many still live in Cuba. When I was young, I always appreciated the care my doctors provided whenever I was sick. Their levels of professionalism and care inspired me to pursue a career in the medical field.

To relax after work, I enjoy getting outside on the beach. I love to travel and visit new places with my three dogs. Learning about new cultures helps me grow as a person.
