My Why

Mentorship is essential to me as a physician and mentor. I have had the privilege to both provide and receive strong mentorship and access to valuable experiences at top educational programs. As a female academic physician and the Hispanic daughter of an immigrant physician, I am aware that not all aspiring physicians have access to those same mentors and experiences. I want to pay it forward and level the playing field for prehealth students so everyone has centralized access to mentorship support opportunities and experiences that strengthen their candidacy for professional school. With those tools, students can make an educated and thoughtful decision about their future career plans and identify areas in healthcare where they can grow, lead and create positive change, and continue to pay it forward to future generations of healthcare workers. Ultimately, this will build a stronger, more resilient workforce that places clinician wellness and patient care at its center.
