I love working with patients and families helping provide and coordinate the best care for their loved ones.
As a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) for Lightyear Health focusing on Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and Behavioral Health, I am part of an interdisciplinary-team that uses a patient-centered approach to increase access to care and provide creative solutions for patient’s living in Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities.
Originally from Miami, FL, I have training in critical care, emergency medicine, pain management, cardiology, and psychiatry. I was a primary care provider for the southern california area helping families in rural areas access healthcare. I am bilingual, fluent in Spanish and English (written/verbal). I have also served as a Registered Nurse in the United States Army Reserve. I am currently in the process of adding another board certification to my medical acumen in the specialty of psychiatry.
Outside of work, I love to read, play soccer, boating, and spend time with friends and family.
