Here's a bit about me and my work:
My name is Carlos and I am passionate about mental health care. I leverage my professional expertise, as well as my lived experience, to build relationships among providers, community stakeholders, and industry leaders.
My goal is to interface clinical practice, policy, and research to reduce health inequities for people living with mental illness.
I am dual-board certified as Family Nurse Practitioner and 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 working or studying, I enjoy traveling as much as possible, staying physically active, searching for new recipes, and performing original music. You can can check out my music at www.fogdogmusic.net.
I look forward to collaborating. Let’s stop the stigma and start the conversation!
