About me

I moved to the United States ten years ago from Cali, Colombia. I am fluent in both English and Spanish, which helps me communicate with more patients. There are a few medical professionals in my family, and from a young age, my family has inspired me to pursue a career as a Nurse Practitioner. I enjoy being involved in my patients’ health and playing a role in their path to recovery.

A good day at work for me means that I feel a sense of accomplishment when I take off my lab coat. I enjoy seeing my patients happy and healthy, and even if I only played a small role, I know that my work mattered.

At Sanitas, you'll find that we can do most everything in one place. This means that we can take care of most of the patient’s health problems without any unnecessary stress on them or their families. We are also a caring facility that treats each patient like they were family. We offer exceptional services that can make a significant difference in the patient’s life.

In my free time, I enjoy going to the gym, the beach, and riding my bike. I also spend a lot of time with my boyfriend and enjoy traveling. So far, I've been to Paris, London, the Dominican Republic, and Mexico. I’d like to travel to as many U.S. states as possible.
