Throughout medical school and residency Dr. Carretero served as a tutor and mentor to high-school students preparing for college entrance exams. She also had the opportunity to work in the health care system in Spain, on two separate occasions during both medical school and residency, so that she could improve her communication with her many Spanish speaking patients. Following residency Dr. Carretero moved to Colorado and started her own practice in the lower highlands (lowerhighlandsdermatology.com), where she also lives. She enjoys seeing patients of all ages and does take special pride in being able to serve the large Latino community in the Denver area, as she is fluent in Spanish. Dr. Carretero is a past board member of the Level One Society of the Denver Health Foundation and Project PAVE(promoting alternatives to violence through education). She is an active member of Robby’s Friends (a non-profit serving children with cancer). She has also appeared in Elle magazine, The Denver Post, and on Colorado Fox morning news.
