How long have you been with Sixteenth Street?
I started in October 2017, shortly after we relocated our family to the Milwaukee area. I was thrilled to find a job that allowed me to use my Spanish, practice OB, and work with the under-served.
What do you love about Sixteenth Street?
I was drawn to join the work at Sixteenth Street because of its mission of caring for the under-served. Sixteenth Street is a wonderfully unique group of people all dedicated to the common purpose of helping our patients thrive both physically and mentally. I count it a privilege to work alongside such a committed and passionate group, and to do the difficult but rewarding work we do together.
What is your philosophy of practice?
I strive to provide comprehensive whole-person care to my patients. Through their trust in our relationship, I hope to guide patients to make better choices, live healthier lifestyles and succeed in meeting their health goals. The foundation of good care, I believe, is the doctor-patient relationship.
What is special about the work you do?
I love being able to take care of families. One of the most rewarding parts of my career has been caring for pregnant women, often through multiple pregnancies, and then continuing to care for their children as they grow up. It is a joy for me to build relationships with my patients over time and really get to know the families I care for.
Anything else you’d like to add?
I am part-time at Layton, so I only see patients on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The other days of the week I am busy homeschooling my children. I enjoy the balance of doing both.
