I enjoy traveling with him and experiencing all the world has to offer. My passions include reading, spending quality time with the important people in my life and playing tennis. My passion for tennis even led me to play on the Venezuela National Team when I still lived there. Dr. Contreras is also a proud member of the National Guard.
