I grew up in Port Neches, Texas but I’m originally from Lima, Peru. When I was young I always wanted to be a veterinarian because of my love for dogs. However, my dad is a primary care doctor, so I was always influenced by his work and eventually decided to go into healthcare.

I have two older sisters, a husband and two dogs. When I’m not at work I enjoy exercising, tennis, creating photo albums and baking.
