Victoria D. Larios, BSN RN was born in Jalisco, Mexico to Hispanic Immigrants. She was brought
to the United States at the young age of one year old by her parents and has lived in the Yakima
area for most of her life. She pursued her nursing career after starting a family of her own and
enjoys working and caring for the undeserved Hispanic populations. She has used her knowledge
of the Hispanic culture to help care for these patients during her nursing career. Having the
background of her Hispanic roots has helped her understand the barriers to care, expectations,
and understanding of medicine these patients have in order to provider quality care to them.
