About me

I was born in Colombia and moved to Miami as a young teenager. While in Miami I received a bachelor’s in biology from Florida International University and a bachelor’s in nursing from the University of Miami. I later moved to Nashville in 2019 where I received my master’s in nursing with a specialty in Family Practice from Vanderbilt University. Although I enjoy the peace and quiet of country life, my hometown is South Florida. I speak both Spanish and English and have found that being bilingual helps me serve the diverse community of South Florida better. 

I decided to go into medicine because as I grew up in South Florida, I recognized the need for healthcare professionals with diverse cultural backgrounds. My goal is to make a difference in my community by reducing health disparities and improving the health quality of underserved communities. 

A good day at work means that I can educate my patients on their disease process so they can have all the necessary tools to take control of their health and have a better quality of life. 

I want you to know that at Sanitas you will be treated like family by a caring and compassionate team that will listen to all your health concerns. 

When I take off my coat, I love to spend quality time with my family and dog outdoors. I also enjoy cooking new foods and traveling in my free time.
