Personal Biography

I grew up in Venezuela and have called the United States home since 2011. I completed my residency at the University of Illinois-Chicago, where I also served as chief resident. I moved to Minnesota in 2017 for fellowship training at the UMN and look forward to staying in Minnesota to be part of the team at Children's. During fellowship I was very lucky to be mentored by excellent physicians in the area of neonatal nutrition and growth, and had the opportunity to work on projects related to hyperglycemia in neonates and its repercussion on future brain development, as well as a clinical trial linking enhanced parental nutrition during the first week of life with improved lean growth and neurodevelopment. I also look forward to growing further my interests in QI in the area of antibiotic stewardship, as well as the care of underserved and non-English speaking families. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking and baking, skiing and going to the theater.
