Where I practice
I moved from Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 2012 to practice obstetrics and gynecology with the Colorado Permanente Medical Group. My father, who is a family physician and worked for years with the Indian Health Service, has inspired me in many ways. Helping women through my practice has the potential to positively impact many lives—including those of my patients’ children and families. I believe women are the backbone of a healthy society and hope that I can impact the community I work in. I look forward to hearing my patients’ stories and getting to know them beyond their medical conditions. I’m proud to have many international and intercultural experiences. I speak Spanish fluently. I enjoy time away from work with my partner and young son.
About my practice
Practicing obstetrics and gynecology allows me to work in the hospital and medical offices, dealing with acute illness and helping patients to prevent disease. I look forward to going to work every day to hear my patients’ stories. I strive to do the best by my patients and provide excellent medical care. I learn so much from my patients and continually adjust and improve my practice. I enjoy serving a range of age groups and women from many cultural backgrounds. Being with my patients during stressful times, whether it be childbirth or major surgery, is very satisfying. I’m grateful to have a wonderful team of doctors and nurses who ensure around-the-clock care of my patients when I’m not available. I tend to be direct in my communication style and aim to provide patients with a variety of options for their condition. Health care decisions can be overwhelming and I strive to be available in the office, by phone or by email depending on what works best for an individual.
How I thrive
I thrive off the good energy of my family, friends, community, colleagues and patients! I also cherish my alone time to reflect on my life, my purpose and future goals. A change of pace is refreshing and helps me gain perspective. I’m active in the outdoors and travelling. My creative outlet is cooking. I stay connected with volunteer work and most recently have focused on training nurses in cervical cancer screening in Latin America.
