Where did you work before this position?
I was always involved with sales during my professional career. But before I started with AA Medical as a logistics and sales associate, I was the general manager of a car rental business in Miami.
Do you like traveling?
Yes, I think traveling is the best way to spend money. It gives you that extra time with your family, brings you knowledge and culture, and is always fun even when you travel to work.
What's your favorite animal?
I love dogs. My dog Jimi is a 16 year old Miniature Daschund "hotdog."
What is your goal in life?
My personal goal is to continue serving as a model for my family, by finding and keeping a healthy work-life balance, and always being honest and open with others.
What is your career highlight?
I had some great moments in my professional career, but I think this whole year at AA Medical is one of my career highlights.
Do you like coffee or tea?
I do not like either. I prefer coca cola.
What is the most exciting part of your job?
The most exciting part of my job is being in touch with people/customers daily and seeing their satisfaction when you achieve their expectations.
Do you have any hobbies?
Yes, I do. I'm a Sim Race Driver. I race cars virtually on Iracing, and I also love soccer.
What kind of music do you like?
I like Blues, Classic Rock, and Country music.
What is your favorite tradition? And why?
My favorite tradition is on the 4th of July because it is the essential day in our country and a fun time to gather with some close friends and family to celebrate this amazing country. I also cannot forget the Nascar race here in Homestead, Miami. It is in November. Some friends and I are always there every year for the past 20 years. We start the grill at 8 am sharp with a superb breakfast to get the day started.
