I am a Filipinx creator and connector. I discovered my love of being a cradle to grave family physician while at Creighton Med School on a rotation in Superior, NE. I trained for residency in Modesto preparing to be a rural family doc and moved to rural Northern CA after residency. I worked in the broken corporate model of medicine because I did not know any other option than to be employed.
Then, I learned about DPC and the bands holding my wings were clipped. Now, I fly free as a Direct Primary Care physician being able to practice medicine how I have always wanted to. With this freedom, I am charged up to share with other physicians the power of the Direct Primary Care model. I will tell any and all about DPC because the model is truly at the core of how we will take back healthcare.
Owner and CEO
In September of 2021, I opened Big Trees MD, a Direct Primary Care practice in Calaveras County. I care for my patients through telemedicine and home visits. Care is for all ages and consists of acute care, preventative health, chronic care, psychiatric care, gender inclusive care, contraceptive care, obstetrics, procedural care.
Podcast Founder and Host
I created the My DPC Story podcast to bring to the airwaves the many DPC physicians who are making DPC happen for their individual communities. In 5/2022 it was ranked as #89 on the Apple Podcasts Medicine chart in the United States.
Brand Design and Development Consultant
I have been serving as a brand consultant for national companies since being involved in the DPC ecosystem. As a rural family DPC physician, my brand consulting ranges from product design to graphic design to content creation and public relations guidance.
Since diving in to the DPC community, I pull from my passion to hear what drives a person and I help guide them in building out their dream future, whether that includes DPC and/or entrepreneurship.
