Working as a full-scale OBGYN in Phoenix, Arizona has been an incredible journey for me. From performing robotic surgeries to delivering babies, I am involved in all aspects of obstetrics and gynecology. My training in New York City equipped me with the knowledge and skills to provide compassionate care to women in every stage of their lives.
Medicine has always been a part of my life, as my father is a UAG graduate and practices family medicine. Growing up in a medical household, I knew from a young age that medicine was my true passion. My experiences in Guadalajara, where I studied at UAG, were transformative. Despite not knowing any Spanish when I arrived, I embraced the culture and fell in love with the city and its people. It allowed me to practice medicine and pursue my dreams and passions.
During my time as a student, I actively engaged in social work, participating in various brigades and events such as 'Project Smile' and 'Cruz Verde.' Although my professional commitments in Phoenix limit my involvement in social work now, I remain dedicated to serving my community through the hospital system. I have fond memories of my time as a student at UAG, particularly the exceptional instructors like Dr. Carmelita, whose passion for teaching was inspiring. Learning in a different country provided me with invaluable life experiences that have shaped the kind of physician I am today. Being back at UAG is an honor for me. Witnessing the changes and experiences here fills me with excitement and gratitude. Being chosen as the padrino for this graduating class is a significant privilege, and I am thrilled to be a part of their journey.
