About me

At Sanitas, I'm committed to my patients' health and providing the best care for them. My team and I provide the information, tools, and support they need during every appointment and every interaction with us. To me, the best day at work is when I establish a connection with my patients from the very first appointment. I love taking care of them and am always moved by the difference I can make in their lives.

I was born in Venezuela and became a medical doctor there. When I was growing up, my father had a medical emergency and wasn’t likely to survive, but because of the help of a charismatic doctor, my father lived! This up-close, medical experience motivated me to help others, just like the doctor who had saved my father. I moved to the U.S. in 2006, where I practice as a family nurse practitioner at Sanitas.

I'm married and have three kids, including a set of twins, and a small dog who is a part of the family, too. When I get home from work, I love to spend time with my family. I truly enjoy hearing about their days and chatting with them about my work. My kids want to follow in my footsteps and enter the medical field when they grow up. We enjoy eating out as a family. I also love traveling, especially to Europe. I like learning about European history and culture.
