Dr. Tiberio was born and raised in the small, quiet beach town of San Clemente, California. Ever since she can remember, she told friends and family that her dream was to become a pediatrician. She attended an independent high school in Tustin, California where she met her now-husband. She completed her undergraduate studies at California State University, Long Beach where she also tutored science and math and mentored first-year students at the James L. Jensen Student Access to Science and Mathematics Center. Dr. Tiberio graduated magna cum laude and was awarded membership to Phi Beta Kappa with a major in biology and a minor in chemistry.
After graduation and during the process of applying to medical school, Dr. Tiberio worked as an administrative assistant at the University of California, Irvine Medical Center. She and her civil engineer husband then moved to Westchester County, New York so she could attend New York Medical College. At NYMC, her love for pediatric medicine was confirmed, and she became active in the student pediatric interest group.
After four years of living through frigid, snowy winters, Dr. Tiberio and her husband decided it was time to move somewhere warmer and closer to family. They headed to San Antonio, Texas where she completed her pediatric residency at Baylor College of Medicine at the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio. During her senior capstone rotation, she met Dr. Almendarez and staff at Aquarius Pediatrics. Here she enjoyed her time so much that she decided to stay permanently!
In her free-time, Dr. Tiberio enjoys traveling with her husband. She also enjoys yoga, spending time with her in-laws in northern Texas, hiking, and playing with their adopted cat, Rajah.
