Insurance

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.

Biography

Ana is passionate about helping children, youth, and families thrive amid adverse circumstances. Though born and raised in southern Spain, Ana has strong roots in the Pacific Northwest, where she has lived her entire adult life. Over the past decade, Ana has supported Portland area children, youth, and families as a community organizer, preschool teacher, nanny, healthcare interpreter and volunteer. In recent years, she has specialized in helping kids and families cope with illness and hospitalization.

Ana enjoys spending time with her husband and cat, Murphy. She has recently rediscovered her love of fantasy novels and it is not uncommon to find her curled up in her “comfy chair” with a book and a hot cup of tea. Ana also loves to hike, travel, and visit her friends and family back home in Spain.
