Resident, Class of 2026

Department of Family and Community Medicine

Pronouns: she/her/ella


I am a first-generation Latinx college and medical school graduate. I was among the first in my family to pursue a medical degree. I am incredibly passionate about serving and advocating for underserved communities. I volunteer as a medical interpreter and mentor underrepresented students in medicine, as well as a variety of organizations supporting the Chicagoland area.

In my free time, I love road trips, visiting museums, photography, and hiking with friends and family.
