About me
At Sanitas, we offer a comprehensive range of services aimed at tackling the social, economic, and behavioral factors that influence health outcomes. For me, a fulfilling day at work is when I witness my patients making meaningful connections between their lifestyle choices—like diet, exercise, and personal habits—and their health outcomes. Originally from Houston, Texas, I've had the privilege of living in various cities across the US, including Washington, DC, Birmingham, AL, Oakland, CA, Brooklyn, NY, and most recently, Tampa, FL. I was drawn to medicine because it's a field rooted in compassion, offering the chance to uplift and serve the community every day. Outside of work, I thrive on outdoor adventures. Biking, hiking, kayaking, camping—you name it, I'm there! Whether it's under the sun or beneath the moon, I find solace and inspiration in nature. As a self-professed foodie and chef, I'm constantly exploring the culinary world, particularly drawn to dishes that strike the perfect balance between healthiness and deliciousness.
