Where are you from?

I was born in Caracas, Venezuela and lived there until about the age of 14 when I moved to Calgary, Canada. I stayed there until moving to Victoria, BC in Canada for university, and have been moving cities/countries about every year or so since then.


I enjoy working out (usually combinations of running and weight training), I love to dance any chance I get (anywhere and to any genre of music), and I like to hang out near the ocean (swimming, kayaking, sailing, sun bathing, etc).

Why did you choose UCDavis EM?

I really enjoyed the atmosphere during my interview at UC Davis, I remember getting some of the most interesting and insightful questions of all the ones I got during my entire interview trail, and it really sparked an interest in the program. Then the more I learned the more I could see how much thought had been put into structuring the program to ensure that we got the best education possible. I saw a supportive and enriching learning environment with a leadership team that is genuinely interested in helping you grow as a resident and as a person. Can't go wrong!
