After deciding to specialize in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Pellicena completed her residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas in 2001. During her education, Dr. Pellicena was awarded the Arthur M. Farris Sr. MD Resident Research Award for her research on the genetics of pre-eclampsia in 2000.

In 2004, Dr. Pellicena was board certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and she’s a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. 

Currently, Dr. Pellicena has admitting privileges at Memorial Hermann Northwest Hospital. As a native of Spain, Dr. Pellicena welcomes both English- and Spanish-speaking patients.
