I was born in Cuba and graduated from Medical school in 1993 from the Faculty of Medical Sciences in Matanzas, affiliated to the University of Havana, Cuba. I practiced for 4 years in Cuba and finished 3 years of Family Medicine training. I always wanted to be a Pediatrician, but in Cuba the government manages the future of the medical professionals. I came to the US in 1997 with my husband and son, then 3 years old in a boat and followed my dream. I passed all of the United States Medical license examinations and underwent a Pediatric Residency program with Shands Children Hospital at the University of Florida in Gainesville. I graduated in June 2008. I started practicing Pediatrics in Port Charlotte right after graduation in a group Practice. I opened my own Practice in April 2012 to fulfill my dream to give my patients the best of my time, knowledge and compassion. I have 2 children, ages 18 and 25 and I have been happily married for 26 years. My husband is my main support; I couldn’t have done any of the above without him. I love camping, sewing, the beach and spending time with my family. I love my team!!! Everybody that is working with me is great! I have had the privilege to teach them, help them, be helped and share wonderful memories. They all love children and are happy to be working at our practice. That reflects in their daily work, that is not easy but they show how much they enjoy it.
