I am a Latina researcher and practicing Family Nurse Practitioner, born and raised in Chile. As a native Spanish speaker I am interested in conducting research with the Hispanic population and help to decrease and eliminate health disparities.

My research focus is understanding cultural beliefs and practices that affect health. I also have an interest in psychometric testing of research instruments and teaching scholarship that involve further use of technology in the classroom.
