Resident Bio:

I was born in Los Angeles but spent my childhood in rural Mexico. Before moving to Seattle, I lived in Northern California, where I completed my undergraduate and medical education. My desire to ameliorate the negative social and structural forces that disproportionately affect the health of communities of color led me to pursue a Master’s in Public Health. Through research and patient advocacy, I hope to improve surgical care access and delivery for patients with limited English proficiency. The excellent clinical training, diverse research opportunities, and my inspirational co-residents made UW the perfect fit for me.
