About me

As a family nurse practitioner at Sanitas, I treat my patients like family, listen to their health concerns, and work with a caring and compassionate team. Being bilingual,  Spanish and English, helps me serve my patients and the diverse community of South Florida better. A good day at work means that I can educate my patients on their disease so they can have all the necessary tools to take control of their health and have a better quality of life. 

I was born in Colombia and moved to Miami as a young teenager. While there, I earned two undergraduate degrees, one in biology and one in nursing, then moved to Nashville in 2019 where I received my master’s degree in nursing with a specialty in family practice. Although I enjoy the peace and quiet of country life, my home is South Florida. Growing up there, I recognized the need for healthcare professionals with diverse cultural backgrounds and chose medicine as a career. My goal is to make a difference in my community by reducing health disparities and improving the health quality of underserved communities.

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.
