About me

I first fell in love with community health when I studied abroad in Honduras as an undergraduate at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. After graduating, I worked at an international organization focused on preventing violence against women. Through this job I had the opportunity to travel throughout Central America. Wanting to work more closely with local communities in the United States, I decided to complete an accelerated nursing program at Duke. I have worked as a nurse in Cardio-Thoracic Surgery and Urgent Care but found my niche in primary care where I can partner with patients and build relationships. After training as a nurse practitioner, I worked at a community health clinic in Raleigh, North Carolina, serving primarily Spanish-speaking immigrants. Estudie en Honduras en la Universidad. Allí, me encanto trabajar en la salud pública. Después de graduarme de la Universidad de Michigan, trabaje con un ONG que se enfoca en los derechos de las mujeres. Nuestra meta fue prevenir la violencia contra las mujeres. Durante este tiempo, viaje y trabaje mucho en Centro América. Asistí a la escuela de enfermería en Carolina del Norte. Trabaje en surgiría de corazón y pulmones y en cuidado urgente. Me encanta trabajar en la salud primaria donde yo puedo crecer relaciones con mis pacientes. Antes de vivir en Portland, trabaje en una clínica en Carolina del Norte donde la mayoría de mis pacientes fueron de Centro América

About my practice

Nursing opened my eyes to a more patient-centered approach to medicine. I focus on partnering with patients to help them accomplish their health goals. I see my role as empowering you to become the best version of yourself possible. Becoming a mother changed how I practice pediatrics, because I now understand intimately the joys and challenges of being a parent. Enfermeria me enseno una manera de tratamiento en que se enfoca en el paciente. Me enfoco en apoyar a mis pacientes y cumplir sus metas de salud. Mi papel es apoderar a usted ser lo mejor version posible de si misma.

How I thrive

I love dancing in all forms and will always say yes to Zumba or salsa. I enjoy running and exploring the outdoors with my dog, Daisy. I love trying out new recipes and ways to make healthy food taste delicious. Me encanta bailar en todas las formas. Voy a decir “Si” a cualquier clase de Zumba o salsa. Me disfruta correr y explorar la naturaleza con mi perrita, Daisy. Tambien, me gusta cocinar y probar recetas nuevas y sanas.
