About me

As a doctor at Sanitas, I make sure my pediatric patients receive personal, comprehensive, and family-oriented care that is focused on quality. And I ensure the families know they have access to our care teams at any time. A good day at work is when I positively impacting a child, which may not be medical. For instance, I find resources for families who have food insecurities, or I might learn about mental health issues in a teen that is affecting the family dynamic and am able to get them the resources needed to heal.  

My father is from Puerto Rico and my mother is from the Dominican Republic, but I was born and raised in the Northeast. I was the first in my family to complete college and worked part-time to help support my family until I started my third year in medical school. Growing up, my family had limited access to medical professionals who spoke their language and understood their culture. I became a doctor because I wanted to make a difference in some of the health disparities that families still encounter today.  

When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling with my family, mostly to places that are warm so we can spend time at the beach. I also like to read and listen to music.
