Born and raised in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, Dr. Sagrario Olmos-Garcia graduated and earned her medical degree from Universidad de Guadalajara medical school in 1993. Dr. Olmos-Garcia interned at Hospital General de Occidente in 1992 and completed her year-long social service at a rural clinic in 1993. During this period of her medical education, she performed a myriad of different tasks such as delivering babies, educating the community and school-aged children, performing physical exams, immunizing animals and people, and administering care at all hours of the day to the people in underserved communities.
Following her service, Dr. Olmos-Garcia worked in a variety of healthcare settings. She treated patients in long-term care facilities, hospitals, private practices, and the health department for the employees of the airline AeroMexico. One of her favorite places to work was a weight control clinic where she helped guide patients on their weight loss and control journey, teaching about nutrition and healthy lifestyles. In 2015, Dr. Olmos-Garcia moved to the United States and began working as a study coordinator at Coastal Metabolic Research Centre. She is very passionate about working with patients and finds that the most rewarding part of her career is helping them to improve their health.
When Dr. Olmos-Garcia is not working at CMRC, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Dr. Gabriel Garcia, and their three children. She is heavily involved with her younger son’s Boy Scouts of America group and volunteers her time at events and meetings. She also takes care of her family’s many pets including dogs, a cat, a green-cheek parrot, turtles, and a betta fish. Her other hobbies include gardening, baking, reading, and cooking. She has always wanted to make tiramisu and hopes to find the time to do so one day.
