About me

I grew up in Havana, Cuba, where I graduated from medical school in August 2008. I’ve been working in family medicine ever since. In October 2012 I moved to the US and started my medical career here, completing my master’s degree at Ana G. Mendez University in Miami Lakes, FL. I’m still a member of the faculty there, delivering lectures for other students who want to continue their way in this noble profession.

The passion for helping others started to grow in me at a very early age. My decision to study medicine came from the gratitude I always felt for the doctors and nurses who took care of my mother when I was a little girl. As a doctor, I know there’s no match for saving a life or helping a patient improve their health. I’m thankful for the opportunity to work at Sanitas with a team that shares my passion, where everyone knows what to do and how to do it the right way. I want every patient to feel Sanitas is a place where patients are well taken care of.

In my off hours, I love to sing, a passion I’ve had since childhood and hope to continue for a long time to come. Probably more than singing I love to spend time with my kids and my husband. God gave me the gift of a wonderful family, and enjoying their company is the best invested time in my life.
