My interest in medicine first started when I was volunteering for a clinic that was strictly for those without insurance and mostly Spanish speaking patients. Since that time, I have felt deeply compelled to serve this population and so CCHCI fits that mission perfectly. Medicine is so complex and the socioeconomic difficulties of so many adds to this complexity and I am happy to help in this capacity while also working on the border, which has also been a goal of mine since starting my path in medicine.

Behavioral Health Department

This organization was founded on the principle of bringing quality health care to even the most needy and vulnerable. While anyone can experience behavioral health difficulties, it is especially prevalent among those with the least access to essential resources. I love that Chiricahua can help bring these essential services to those who need it most.

Behavioral Health Department

I believe in health for all because I feel like it is a universal right for every individual. Every individual in any country should be able to receive adequate health care for all their needs: physical, social, mental, emotional, and spiritual which makes us whole. Health care should focus on the whole person as everything is interrelated. I believe preventive care is the key to helping our communities. The CCHCI mission of building healthy communities is important to me because we all depend on one another, it’s all about the human connection with others. By making sure that we are focused on building healthy communities, we are also taking care of one another.
