Hometown: Stoughton, Massachusetts

Why BCOM: I wanted to travel to a new area and use my ability to speak Spanish to help more people as a future doctor. There are so many opportunities in this area for the medical field and it is very exciting to be part of this pioneering class!

Future Goals: I plan on becoming a physiatrist after graduating and entering the medical field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R). In this field specifically, one can focus on rehabilitating the patient from a traumatic injury through non-surgical methods.

Hobbies: In my free time, I teach Bodypump at local gyms and really take an interest in my personal fitness through weightlifting and nutrition. I also really enjoy reality TV shows and hope one day to be on Survivor!

Surprising Fact: I am blind in my left eye and can’t see 3D movies. But they’re too expensive anyway.
