Hometown: Cabo Rojo, PR
Medical School: San Juan Bautista School of Medicine
Favorite Houston Restaurant: I haven't figured out yet. We have not been able to go out and explore cause the 'Rona but if I were to pick a certain type of food I would say Barbecue and my kitchen (I like to cook)!
Favorite Part of Living in Houston: Friendly neighborhood, lots of parks to do exercise, pet friendly city, the Astros, a lot of latino population.
Favorite Part of the Baylor EM Residency: I guess what drove me into emergency medicine was the connection with the people, we are the first line of support for the uninsured. Our specialty at Baylor focuses on the social disparities of health, and coming from a community based medical school, that goes along with my core values. Also, the ER "corillo" is a family, so many brilliant minds and all of them try to help you become the best physician you can be.
Interesting Previous Career: I made some money while in undergrad playing the Tuba and helping my uncle build tennis courts. I also got a full scholarship playing for the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagez Marching Band (Antes, ahora y siempre...COLEGIO!!!!). And did some Public Health research while in medschool.
