Here's a bit about me and my work:
My name is Carlos and I am passionate about mental health care. I leverage my lived experience as a young adult in recovery, as well as my professional expertise, to build relationships among providers, community stakeholders and industry leaders.
My goal is to assist organizations and communities develop systems for the prevention and treatment of serious mental illness through early intervention in youth.
I am board certified as Family Nurse Practitioner and I am pursuing board certification as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. In addition, I serve on the Board of Directors for The National Alliance on Mental Illness and NAMI Miami-Dade County. NAMI is the largest grassroots organizations advocating for families and individuals living with mental illness.
When I’m not studying or working, I enjoy traveling as much as possible, staying physically active, searching for new recipes and performing original music. You can can check out mymy band at
I look forward to collaborating. Let’s stop the stigma and start the conversation!
