I was born in Nicaragua and grew up in Miami, Florida. I received a Bachelors in Chemistry with a concentration in Biomedical Sciences and a Bachelors in Biology with a concentration in Microbiology from The Pennsylvania State University and The University of South Florida.
Prior to medical school, I worked as a Clinical Research Coordinator at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute and earned a Masters in Biology Medical Sciences and a Masters in Interdisciplinary Studies in Biological and Physical Sciences.
I attended medical school in NYC at The Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed my residency in Family Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai/Institute for Family Health in NYC and served as Chief Resident. Following residency I transitioned to junior faculty in Reproductive Health Care and Advocacy.
My professional interests include health disparities, sports medicine, research and reproductive health with a special interest in minority and marginalized communities.
Outside of work I enjoy playing soccer and basketball, traveling and spending time with my family and new puppy, Harper.
