Areas of Interest:
My interests in family medicine are constantly changing (and growing!) but at the moment my main interests include serving Latino communities and underserved medicine in general, obstetrics, adolescent medicine, LGBTQ health, and in-office procedures.
I have done survey research on the perceptions of autism among Latino parents in Charlottesville, VA and on the nutrient intake of women of childbearing age in Limpopo, South Africa.

Non-Medical Interests and Hobbies:
I enjoy running, especially with my fiancé Chris, sometimes running half-marathons, ashtanga yoga, knitting, having indoor plants, listening to NPR, discovering IPAs that I enjoy, and exploring all the awesome neighborhoods in Chicago.
Why did you come to West Suburban? What do you like best?
I am thrilled to be a part of West Suburban for so many reasons: the community hospital with a focus on underserved medicine, the strong OB training including exposure to C-sections, increased ICU experience, the stellar reputation, and most of all meeting all of the wonderful residents, faculty and administrative staff at the interview day and feeling excited and energized afterwards; I knew this is where I wanted to be!
