Originally from Nicaragua, I attended Loma Linda University School of Medicine in Loma Linda, California and completed my specialty training in internal medicine at Kettering Medical Center, Kettering, Ohio. I am certified with the American Board of Internal Medicine. I practiced for ten plus years with Kaiser Permanente in Southern California then in 2004 moved to the Vancouver area to join Kaiser Permanente here in the Northwest. I have been enjoying the fresh air and the green trees ever since - rain or shine!
I lead a team of dedicated nurses, medical assistants, clinical advice nurses, pharmacists and health educators all focused on meeting my patient’s health care needs. We work closely together using our integrated electronic medical records, allowing me to tailor a unique health care plan for each patient.
Outside of medicine, I really enjoy bird watching, hiking, camping, collecting stamps and coins, listening to music and going on medical mission trips.
