Dr. Martinez was born and raised in La Paz, Bolivia. After graduating from high school, she moved to the U.S. to pursue a career in medicine.

She is committed to supporting women through all stages of their lives. She is particularly interested in contraception counseling, abnormal uterine bleeding, low and high-risk pregnancies and minimally invasive surgery.
