About Me

I was born in Mexico, and my family and I moved to Orange County, Southern California when I was five. I am the first person in my family to go college and the first (but hopefully not the last) to pursue medicine. My road to residency has been quiet an extended one, as I started at Santa Ana Community College, and realized I needed to transfer to a four-year school to continue my love of science. I went on to transfer to the University of California, Irvine to study neurobiology. After college, I worked several years in the field of clinical research studying prostate cancer outcomes, but all the while maintained an interest in medicine. It was until the passage of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that I was finally able to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor and went on to Harvard Medical School.

My goal is to become a generalist OB/GYN and to be a surgeon who is able to directly heal women, as well as a primary care provider who will look after all aspects of reproduction and women’s health. I hope to ultimately practice in a center that will allow me to have direct ties to underserved communities as well as pursue medical education.

Outside of medicine, I have two lovely dogs that are my furry children and help me explore cities. I enjoy trying out new restaurants and later re-creating the meals at home. To clear my mind, I put on my headphones and listen to The Moth podcast while going for jogs.
