I am a first-generation immigrant from Portoviejo, Manabi, Ecuador. Navigating and experiencing life in my community has shaped and fueled my passion for women's reproductive health and education. I firmly believe education and accessible health care are the most powerful tools against disease. I am fascinated by Family medicine and Obstetrics/Gynecology because they allow for primary prevention and education in reproductive health.
