Originally from the tropical island of Puerto Rico, I left the warm Caribbean sun to do my Psychiatry training at Harvard. After graduating in 2009, I have enjoyed a myriad of academic and employment opportunities. I have worked at the nation’s first and nationally recognized mother-baby day hospital at Women & Infants in Providence, Rhode Island – a Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University faculty backed program – where I enjoyed not only clinical work but also teaching medical students, residents, and fellows. I also worked at Hartford Hospital’s Institute of Living Peripartum Mood Disorders Program in Hartford, Connecticut as a clinician and academic faculty of the Institute of Living/Hartford Hospital Adult Psychiatry Residency training program and UConn Medical School. Now, I am happy to have returned to my warmer roots in the great state of Texas alongside my husband and two young daughters and am looking forward to continuing to work in the sub-specialty that I love while helping current and future parents/caregivers and their families.
