Jose was born in Ecuador but raised in Queens, New York, and moved to South Florida when he was twenty years old. He completed his schooling to be a medical assistant, and his first job as an MA was working for a podiatrist. That was when he realized that healthcare was his field, and that this first job was only a stepping stone. He now has an AA, he is a Certified Registered Medical Assistant, a Certified Nurse Assistant, and certified in basic life support and CPR, which were received from Miami-Dade College.
Working here at the Wellness Center gives Jose pleasure because of the people he helps to have a better and healthier life. And working with this great team is also a plus for Jose, who is very social, fun and outgoing.
