Special interests: all aspects of general practice but particularly preventative health, women's health and chronic disease management.
I am passionate about providing the best possible care for my patients and I think it is my role as a GP to not only look after people when they are unwell, but also to support them to optimize their health and wellbeing.
I met my husband in the Waikato and we are very happy to have settled in Cambridge where we live with our young daughter. I have been lucky to acquire a wide experience through my travel and my work but remain particularly passionate about family and rural medicine.
I am from originally from Colombia, South America. I did my medical training in its capital, Bogota. After graduating, I worked in Colombia as a GP for four years. I moved to New Zealand in 2006, and trained in General Medicine at Taranaki Base Hospital and Waikato Hospital.
I have been working in general practice for the last five years and became a Fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners in July 2017.
I am married to a New Zealander and have one child. We have been living in the Waikato for the last seven years and we love it here.

I married my wife at her family farm in North Yorkshire. We have three lovely children and have been in this beautiful country for about four years. I have recently taken up cycling and enjoy getting into the great outdoors here.
I have worked in general practice for eight years. Over the last few years I have been involved in projects aiming to bring new technology in to general practice as well as teaching GP registrars and newly qualified doctors.
I have a special interest in headache medicine and I am developing an interest in sports injuries. I am very much looking forward to being your local GP.
