About Me
I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. I am the daughter of Cuban and Dutch immigrants and the first person in my family to earn a college degree. Before starting medical school, I was part of a research team at Harvard University where I worked on the development of a potential therapeutic for acute myeloid leukemia. I am passionate about medical education, working with kids who have disabilities and complex medical needs, and advocating for first-gen college students. 

Outside of medicine, I love to spend time outdoors (hiking, skiing, going on walks, and gardening), figure skating, and photography. I have a cat named Dandy and several house plants!

Why I Chose Michigan?
I was amazed by how warm and welcoming the residents, faculty, and staff were on my interview day. I knew that I wanted to train in a supportive environment where I would get excellent training in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Michigan Med-Peds is a close-knit community with incredibly kind and genuine people. I am so thrilled to be doing my residency here!
