As a pediatric endocrinology fellow, my passions include growth disorders, puberty, pediatric obesity and health equity.
Growing up, I always had an enthusiasm for children and families and figuring out how to help everyone access quality healthcare. I am passionate about social determinants of health and addressing health equity. I saw firsthand how my Spanish-speaking grandmother struggled to understand her care in an English-dominated healthcare system and how health literacy can affect health outcomes. I decided to pursue a career in medicine with these experiences in mind.
I think all patients are unique and have their own stories. As a physician, I look forward to caring for the whole person and not just the medical concern. I enjoy working with vulnerable populations and advocating for their care.
In my free time, I love to cook, bake, hike and be outdoors with my husband and toddler!
