Hugo was born and raised in the Falls Church area his entire life. His family is from Guatemala, a few hours outside of the city.  From the various pueblos to surrounding lakes to newly built parks, a trip every three years with his family to Guatemala brings new adventures. Before joining Dr. Van’s team, Hugo spent half a decade in customer service and fulfillment operations in the retail industry.  He is currently studying Data Analytics at NVCC and is excited to bring to the dental industry the same passion that he carried in the retail industry providing innovation, high quality of service and long-term value.

Naturally curious, he is always researching new skills to learn! From cooking to creating music mixes, economics to machine learning, if it sparks his interest, he will explore it. When not researching or working on projects, he loves to explore new trails to hike, burn calories through volleyball & lifting weights as well as spending time with family & friends.
