Biography

As a certified registered nurse anesthetist, Kenia Sosa, CRNA, is an advanced practice RN who administers anesthesia and other medications. She also monitors patients who are receiving, and later recovering, from anesthesia. She focuses on obstetric patients. But she has worked with patients who need a neurological, digestive, or genital or urinary system procedure.

“I always knew that I wanted to work in the medical field,” Kenia shares. “I love helping others so went into nursing. While working in the intensive care unit, I realized that I wanted to further my career and became very interested in anesthesia.”

She adds, “I care for my patients as if I was taking care of a family member that I love. I always try to treat my patients with respect and in a caring manner.”

Kenia grew up in Florida. She shares, “I am a daughter of two Cuban parents who fled communism. They traveled from Cuba to Spain and then to New Jersey where I was born. My parents always encouraged me to study and to work hard for my goals. They have always been a great support.”
