Acerca de mí
Welcome to my home page. I am honored to have spent the last 5 years serving our members and providing high-quality eye care. My passion is providing clear, comfortable vision to members. I spend most of my day practicing general optometry. However, I also have the privilege of pursuing a clinical specialty called orthoptics. Although this specialty involves mostly children, I also treat the occasional adult who is having problems with binocular vision (i.e., double vision, focusing problems, tracking problems).
I was born in Colombia and have lived in the United States since the age of 3. Being a Spanish-speaking doctor has afforded me the opportunity to serve and educate members from many communities. Moreover, I treat members like family and seek to have all members leave my office with all questions answered. I believe that good vision is one of the greatest gifts in life, and I chose this career because I wanted to play a role in preserving, preventing, diagnosing, and treating eye conditions. I graduated with honors from California State University-Los Angeles with a degree in biology and a minor in English. I also went through a rigorous alternative nutrition certificate program at the university, which involved learning about how herbs, supplements, and food contribute to a healthy mind and body. My husband and I have been blessed with 3 children. My hobbies include cooking, dancing to salsa music, traveling, and reading.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
My holistic approach to health care has always been centered around prevention and early detection. Thus, I am an advocate of early and annual comprehensive eye exams, and regularly make referrals to other doctors within our network to ensure that our members get the health care they need.
Cómo vivo bien
I live well by eating healthy, home-cooked meals daily, and by running after my 3 kids. I hope to get back to doing yoga and working out once my kids are a little older. For now, I nourish my body, mind, and spirit with healthy food, sleep, time with loved ones, and routine wellness exams.
