I was raised in San Luis in Southern Colorado and attained my undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado in Boulder studying biology and economics. I attended medical school at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver. I completed my residency and internship at Saint Joseph Hospital in Denver and I am board certified in family practice.
What I most enjoy about medicine is the unique partnership between the physician and patient, built on trust. It requires the knowledge of modern medical science along with the art of human interactions.
I enjoy leisure activities of gardening, literature, and snowboarding. In addition, I enjoy interacting with my Spanish-speaking patients.
