She is a Native New Mexican who grew up in Belen, NM. She was interested in medicine since she was 4 years old, when she decided to memorize all of the bones in the human body, but she only had access to a diagram of a pig, so that was her early study guide.

She believes in preventative medicine and early interventions. She enjoys seeing all age groups from newborns to adolescents. She believes in beginning care before problems arise and embracing wellness.

In her free time, does she have free time? She has a passion for travel and the outdoors. She previously lived in England and Chicago and loves traveling. She believes in the beauty of traveling.

Ultimately, she loves seeing children and families grow and thrive. She loves seeing babies smile and little girls want to be astronauts and little boys want to be artists or fireman.
