About me

As a nurse practitioner at Sanitas, I work to provide the highest quality medical care for my patients. I strive to foster an inclusive environment for my patients and their families. A good day at work means I had a positive impact on my patients and made strong connections with them. Being bilingual allows me to connect and have comfortable communications with my patients. Spanish is my native language, but I am also fluent in English.

I was born and raised in Havana, Cuba, where I became a doctor in 1991 and served as a family physician for several years. In 1999, I moved to Florida where I have lived ever since. Being a resident of the Sunshine State has provided me with the chance to interact with people from various cultures on a regular basis. This has given me a unique perspective that helps me understand my patients better. I decided to go into medicine because I wanted to make a long-lasting and positive impact on the lives of others. The opportunity to go beyond treating illnesses and work toward prevention in the pursuit of helping patients reach the highest quality of life is my greatest motivator in pursuing the field of medicine and try to keep the path to the door cleaning or clear if you can put it under the TV table with them.

When I take off my coat, my favorite thing to do is spend time with my family, either traveling or just lounging at home. I also enjoy curling up with a good book and a cup of tea.
