I was born in Cali, Colombia and lived there for three years but I’ve been in Arkansas for the rest of my life. I graduated from Hendrix College with a degree in Biology and attended medical school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. I chose Family Medicine because I want to work with underserved populations, I enjoy the variety of patients and chief complaints, and I’m excited by the opportunity to develop close relationships with patients. My interests include women’s health, rural medicine, and global health. Fortunately, I was able to spend a month during medical school in Bangladesh working at the International Centre for Diarrheal Disease Research, Bangladesh and I hope to continue working in resource-limited areas in the future. Outside of medicine I enjoy hiking, running, yoga, reading, and spending time with family, friends, and my two cats Toast and Marmalade. I also love exploring new places, eating delicious foods, and I am excited to begin a new journey in New Mexico!
