About me

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my Web page! I am a staff pathologist in Kaiser Permanente's San Diego area. I consider myself very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente. Here I experience a very positive, professional environment, while working as part of a close team of colleagues and staff in caring for your health.


I was born in the city of Saenz Pena, Chaco province, Argentina. There I attended public primary and secondary schools, and then came to the United States for my higher education. I began my undergraduate studies in the nursing program at Hesston College (Hesston, Kansas), and Goshen College (Goshen, Indiana). As a college sophomore, I realized that my true vocation was medicine, particularly the study of biology and human diseases. This led me to transfer to pre-med as a college junior, majoring in Natural Science. I obtained my medical degree at Indiana University School of Medicine, and began my residency in pathology (both anatomic and clinical pathology) at the South Bend Medical Foundation (South Bend, Indiana). Following my desire to experience the West Coast and its Hispanic culture, I completed my pathology residency at Mercy Hospital in San Diego, California, after which I was pleased to find a position at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego.

About my practice

I am involved in the care of our members by making diagnoses of diseases and other medical conditions after examining surgical and biopsy specimens. This enables my colleagues to proceed with the appropriate care and treatment. I am fortunate to work with other very experienced and conscientious pathologists in my department. Together, we strive to provide the best possible service to our colleagues and patients.

How I thrive

While my work is very rewarding, my greatest personal joys derive from my extended family and friends. My two daughters are my greatest priority. In order to maintain and improve my personal wellness, I strive to exercise as often as possible, keep in contact with close friends through church and other activities, and pursue personal individual pleasures such as singing, playing the piano, reading, gardening, and enjoying nature.
