Other interests:
When I’m not working, you can find me on the flying trapeze rig. I also love traveling the world with my husband, learning about wine, and doing video chats (in Spanish!) with my nephew.

Philosophy of care:
I love working in the world of diabetes and weight management because I am able to support people as they vastly improve their quality of life. Change is never easy, especially when working against decades of habits. I encourage people to tune into their true motivation for change so we can use that when times are tough.
