From the Doctor:

I was born in Bogota, Colombia, where I finished medical school. I obtained my Internal Medicine training from the University of Florida. For the past 18 years, I have lived in Jacksonville with my husband raising our two boys. We enjoy the beach, travel and as a family are very active in our church and faith. My special joy is walking on the beach with friends and family.

I am committed to serving our community. I am a Medical Director for F.R.I.E.N.D.S Cancer Care Group, which is a faith-based cancer support group integrating science and faith in a powerful way for healing.
