Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have the opportunity to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and our members. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I am the daughter of Colombian immigrants and was born in Santa Ana, California. I grew up in Chino, where I volunteered at the local hospital and was first introduced to medicine. As an undergraduate at UCLA, I made my decision to become a physician. While completing my medical training at UC Irvine, I spent time volunteering at a free clinic as an interpreter for Spanish-speaking patients. This inspired me to want to work with the medically underserved. I realized that family medicine would be the best way to accomplish this goal. The Kaiser Permanente Hippocrates Circle program, which supports higher education for youth in the medical field, has shown me how highly Kaiser Permanente values the community.
About my practice
My clinical experiences have inspired me to focus on prevention and education. We will work together as a team to address your health concerns. As a Spanish-speaking physician with an understanding of Hispanic culture, I can provide personalized care to a many different people. I am very excited to be a Kaiser Permanente family medicine physician because I know I can make a difference in people's lives.
How I thrive
When I am not working as a physician, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I also love traveling, dancing, and going to the movies. My favorite pastime is relaxing at home and watching my favorite television shows.
