    Collapse Overview
    I was born in Lima Peru. My family moved to the United States when I was 12 due to the eruption of terrorism in my country via a group called The Shining Path, which destabilized the region. I come from a line of physicians with a history of service to the poor. I found my calling to medicine in the remote mountains of Cuzco, while serving the poor during one year as a missionary in the Andes. I have lived all over the world and speak 5 languages, including Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and French. I love to travel and explore new cultures. I have worked in the Bone Marrow Transplant service since 2012, and I am currently faculty in Integrative Medicine at the Osher Center.
