I grew up in Miami, FL around a happy and loving Cuban-American family. I attended Boston College for undergrad where I majored in Economics and met my now fiancée who is a PGY1 Internal Medicine resident at Duke. I attended Florida International University HWCOM for medical school and am so excited to have Winston Salem as my home away from home. I was drawn to Ophthalmology because it combines many of my interests like Neurology, surgery, clinical care and the option of many subspecialties. In my spare time I enjoy travelling with family and friends, exercise/weight lifting, and going to the beach. I also enjoy watching movies and baking.
