Hello! My name is Isabella, but I prefer to go by Bella (yes, like Twilight). I grew up in a small town in Colorado before heading east to complete both my undergraduate and medical education at Boston University. While I was in Boston, I fostered a love for community medicine and women’s health. I also met my wonderful partner Victor and became a very passionate dog mom.

Along the way, I worked to improve my Spanish by studying abroad in Madrid. This helped tremendously when practicing with my mom’s side of the family who immigrated to the US from Ecuador. I plan to continue working on my Spanish fluency during residency training to better serve my Spanish speaking patients. I was drawn to the FMRI-Boise program. They offer broad spectrum training, including the chance for me to focus on women’s health. The outdoorsy feel of Idaho is nostalgic, and I look forward to the comfort of having supportive faculty and residents during my time here.

I have a lot of passions outside of work. This includes playing with my dog, bicycling, hiking, reading mystery novels, crocheting, painting, or watching reality TV with my partner.
