Obstetrics & Gynecology, First-Year Resident

Originally from:

I was born in Miami! Cuban blood! Raised in Costa Rica!

School(s) attended:

I studied in Costa Rica, were I grew up. After I finished medical school I came to the US and I loved my clinical and research experience, so I decided to pursue residency here.

What brought you here to Michigan?

When I interviewed I knew the most important factor was quality of training. Hurley gives me that, and Michigan is an adventure for me and my husband.

Why did you choose your specialty?

I love being active! You never stop in OBGYN. Caring for women is very gratifying. Everyone knows OBGYN “is the perfect combination between Medicine and Surgery.”

Family fun facts:

My whole family is Cuban! They are loud and full of joy. I grew up with my parents and my little sister. They are the best. My new family is my lovely husband – we have been together for over 10 years.

When you’re not working, what do you do for fun?

Travel to new places! Gather with friends! I enjoy to read and binge-watch TV series.
