About me

I was born in Chicago, Illinois and my parents are from Colombia and Cuba. We moved to Central Florida when I was in grade school but my memories of growing up in inner-city Chicago are still with me. I am fluent in Spanish and also empathize with the struggles of the Latino culture. I have always been fascinated in science and human nutrition and biology and choosing a career in the medical field allows me to explore this interest firsthand every day and I also get to help people which is also a passion of mine.

A good day at work for me is when I can coach, counsel, and provide health guidance for my patients and I can see their smiles once they start to feel well again.

At Sanitas, we advocate for our patients and treat them like family by promoting a healthy lifestyle for everyone.

In my free time, I enjoy learning more about health and fitness by staying up to date with the latest news about nutrition, lifting weights, running, and I also enjoy spending time with my family.
