¡Hola, amigos!

My name is Ariana Lerma, and I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas (#GoSpursGo!). I love to cook with my fiancé, go hiking with my cats, and spend time with my friends and family. I also speak English and Spanish fluently!

Being a Texas gal at heart I was beyond thrilled to find out that I would continue my training in my home state, and was even more ecstatic to find out I matched at UTMB! Throughout my life I have always known my calling revolved around caring for those in need. Exposed to medicine at a young age and seeing the positive impact you can make in people’s lives solidified my pursuit for medicine. I chose the path of Family Medicine because I believe it will allow me to make the biggest impact in the community and people’s lives. Additionally, I love how Family Medicine not only encompasses all areas of medicine but how it goes beyond this scope & focuses on establishing a life-long relationship with patients and their growing families that goes across multiple generations.

I look forward for the years to come here during my training, and especially treating my new community!
