Welcome to my Web page. I am glad to have this opportunity to introduce myself. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I’m a Southern California native and did all my training here as well. I first thought of going into medicine in high school while I was volunteering at a local hospital. My passion for medicine grew along with my training. As the first generation in my family born in the United States, I realized the importance of helping others who did not understand the medical systems or could not speak English well enough to access care, and I wanted to help bridge that gap by going into medicine. I speak fluent Spanish.
Medicine presents me with a very special opportunity to connect with people. I strive to give my patients meaningful help and skillful treatment, but listening and responding to what they need is also important. I consider it a privilege to help my patients understand the health issues that concern them, translate what they may not grasp, and communicate with them and their families.
I thrive when I feel a balance in my life. I find that balance by spending as much free time as possible with my husband, my two kids, and two Chihuahuas. I keep a healthy diet and love to dance!
