About me

As a pediatrician at Sanitas, every day is a good day because I get to work with children. A child's smile or laughter can brighten anyone’s day. My patients receive the highest quality care. My priority is always their health and well-being. I love working with young children and found my calling in pediatrics. 

I was born in New Jersey, right here at Clara Maass Hospital! I have lived here most of my life. My family is from Goa, India, (a former state of the Portuguese Empire) which is why my last name is Portuguese. Though only fluent in English, I'm currently trying to improve my Spanish language skills for better  communication with my patients. Fascinated with science when I was growing up, I decided to go into medicine because I wanted to make a difference.

When I take off my white coat, I love spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy cooking, eating good food and traveling.
