 A Personal Note from Dr. Herrera  

I call Galveston home and was so excited to have the opportunity to end up back home and at such a robust Family Medicine Program. Just in my short time of being at UTMB I have grown to love the program even more and my fellow colleagues, everyone is so supportive and encouraging. I chose Family Medicine because I liked everything in medical school, but even within Family Medicine I see how much opportunity there is and this excites me as I continue my journey through residency. UTMB Galveston FM residency really allows you the independence to gain the experience needed but enough upper level support to always feel confident in your decisions.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, family, Great Dane puppy (Tornado) and friends. Game night is one of my favorites!
