About me

I was born in Bulgaria and moved to the United States in 1999. I learned Spanish throughout my high school and college years and majored in Hispanic Language and Literature. I chose to pursue a career in medicine because I wanted the ability to directly help patients and become a part of a continuously challenging and evolving environment.

A good day at work for me is when I spend my time well with patients and can provide sufficient answers to all of their questions, plans for the future, and more insight into how I am caring for them.

At Sanitas, we take our time to learn more about our patients and connect with them on a personal level. We want to know what they do for work, what their interests are, and how their lifestyle relates to or affects their overall health.

In my free time, I enjoy dancing and spending time with family and friends.
