Ever since I was about 8 or 9 yrs old, my abuelita Rosalbita said 'este nino es un plato. Es tan habiloso, va a ser doctor.'
I remember my grandmother killing the chicken with an axe. Then dissecting it and showing me the liver, heart, lungs, bones, stomach, and how the eggs come out.
True enough, when I got to college... I guessed, 'I think I'm supposed to study medicine.'
I was born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. My father was a US diplomate, and mother from Chile.
True to all ex-pat children, my favorite hobby is travelling.
I love doing medical missions. They help keep sanity in a broken world. Especially when comparing our dysfunctional healthcare system.
The more we give away, the more the universe gives back to us.
We should all practice GIVING a little more.
The photos and relics in our clinic are originals. They have special meaning. They bring good vibes to our space.
