I am a Mexican dietitian specialized in obesity and related diseases. With a bachelor's degree in nutrition and certifications in Clinical Nutrition and Obesity Management, I have established a solid educational foundation over the past decade. My experience includes an internship at the National Institute of Medical Sciences and Nutrition Salvador Zubirán, as well as roles as a dietitian at daycares focusing on children's nutrition and as a clinical dietitian at The American British Cowdray Hospital in Mexico City, specifically in the Obesity and Nutrition Center. Throughout these positions, I have refined my skills and fostered a compassionate environment for my patients.
Recently, I relocated to Houston, where I have embraced a multicultural environment that allows me to gain insights into different cultures. Currently, I serve as a Research Coordinator in Dr. O'Connor's lab at the Children's Nutrition Research Center (CNRC). I am actively involved in the "Papás Saludables, Niños Saludables" (Healthy Dads, Healthy Kids) program, contributing to data collection and recruitment efforts. This opportunity allows me to deepen my understanding of the importance of healthy habits and their impact on quality of life.
In addition to my professional pursuits, I find great joy in learning to play the piano, doing exercise, and creating beautiful memories with my family.
With a genuine and a strong commitment to the field of nutrition and research, I am dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of individuals and families.
