Her passion for dentistry started as a kid and it was her dream career. She was always fascinated by people’s smiles and how she could help them smile more. “Being a dentist gives me the opportunity to see patients smile with confidence and that is gratifying to me. I love when I am able to gain my patient’s trust when we work together to restore or maintain dental health, I also love teaching young patients the importance of oral health.”
She was born in Caracas, Venezuela moved to the USA in 1998. She and her family have lived in Elmhurst, IL since. She has a teenage son named Alex who lives with her.
She likes reading, working out, and traveling to different countries and learning about their cultures. She has been involved in many community events to help the Hispanic community (especially children) get the service they need, from in-school programs to assistant teaching at a UIC dental school.
In her free time, she tries to learn Korean because she enjoys romantic K-dramas.
