About me

As a nurse practitioner at Sanitas, I treat my patients like family. I provide compassionate and ethical patient care while maintaining a healthy environment. A good day at work means having a sense of purpose, feeling valued, and being able to enjoy the success and achievements of good healthcare with my patients. My patients can be comfortable communicating with me in either Spanish, my native language, or English.

Born and raised in Cuba, I graduated from medical school in 2002. I moved to the United States in 2009 and became a family nurse practitioner. With my advanced medical knowledge and nursing skills, I can make valuable contributions and provide competent health care to my community. I decided to go into medicine because I want to care for others. Knowing that I can apply my personal experience in disease prevention as well as contribute to a patient’s recovery gives me a sense of pride, which strengthens my commitment to this profession. 

When I take off my coat, I enjoy traveling around the world, working out, and spending time with my family and friends.
