As a board-certified Physician Assistant (PA-C), I specialize in outpatient internal medicine, focusing on chronic conditions, preventive care, urgent medical needs, and mental well-being. Graduating with honors and a Spanish emphasis from the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine, I am dedicated to understanding my patients' aspirations and guiding them towards achieving their health goals. Serving as their advocate, I empower individuals to envision a life beyond their current circumstances, supporting them in making incremental progress along their health journey.

Driven by a passion for continuous learning, I recently earned a Doctoral degree (DMSc) from the University of Lynchburg and obtained a certificate in narrative medicine from Columbia University. Through my clinical and narrative medicine skills, I have contributed articles to peer-reviewed journals such as the Journal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, Journal of Narrative Visions, and The Examined Life Journal. Crafting patient narratives allows me to deeply understand others' perspectives, enhancing my diagnostic and treatment capabilities while fostering empathy.

My family serves as a constant source of inspiration and encouragement. My husband and I share a passion for cooking, hiking, and volunteering on medical mission trips. We are proud parents of three daughters, all pursuing careers in medicine, a son specializing in finance, and two wonderful sons-in-law.

In both personal and professional capacities, I uphold a FIGHT ON & HEAL ON spirit, embodying resilience, determination, and compassion. I am committed to providing comprehensive care and fostering meaningful connections with each patient, guiding them towards optimal health and well-being
