I was raised in Long Island, New York. I attended Boston College where I received a BA in English. I completed medical school and a Diagnostic Radiology residency program in Puerto Rico. In 2005, I completed a fellowship in Musculoskeletal Radiology at the University of Miami. For over 17 years, I have worked as a Teleradiologist from my home office in Miami, Florida. Currently, I am a Staff Radiologist and Specialist Consultant at DocPanel. I am also a diplomate of the American Board of Radiology and a founding medical partner at Doctorpedia.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three sons, traveling, getting together with friends, exercising, and writing. Most recently, my lifelong dream of writing a book became a reality. I published my first prose poetry book titled, Roses and Thorns: a memoir-esque compilation of a beautiful and messy life. I hope that by sharing my stories about grief, fear, failure, shame, evolution, success, family, and love, it will lead others to embrace authentic introspection, healing, empathy, gratitude, and self-compassion.
