Get to Know Me

My family and I moved from Puerto Rico to Florida in 2018. I am the mother of two amazing kids. My greatest pleasure is spending time with my family and watching my kids grow up. That is also why I love working with kids. Children have a genuine way of making me smile and making my job fulfilling and special every day. 

Why I Treat Children

I consider pediatrics to be the most rewarding specialty in medicine. It is a privilege to care for the health of children, watching them grow up and having an impact on who they will become.  I am happy I get to do this for the rest of my life. 

What I'm Passionate About

My family and my patients are my inspiration. I understand the joys, demands and challenges of caring for children both as a parent and as a pediatrician. I treat each patient as if they were my own child. I am passionate about nurturing the growth, development and health of my patients, while guiding and connecting with parents to help provide information and encouragement as they navigate parenthood. I am truly honored to be part of these children’s lives. My medical interests include:   Newborn and Infant Medical Care Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Allergy, Bronchial Asthma and Atopic Dermatitis

How I Try to Make A Difference

Fostering the healthy development and growth of children is my priority. A healthy child grows up to become a healthy adult. I believe that by supporting the physical, emotional and social needs of each pediatric patient, we can establish the basis for happy and healthy families.
