Dr. Souza was inspired to get into healthcare after attending many doctors’ appointments with her Spanish speaking family members, and saw the immense difference that was made when the provider spoke Spanish and a translator was not needed.

Her personal philosophy of care is centered around putting the effort in to meet patients where they are. She truly believes in developing care plans that allow her to navigate the many unique barriers that patients may face.
When not at work, Dr. Souza enjoys baking for friends and family, reading, and spending time with her family and three cats.
