Hi my name is Manny and I only go by Manny!
I am a Certified Medical Assistant and in my last year of school till I receive my bachelors in Psychology. My goal in Psychology is to be able to work with kids who experience trauma and be a part of them overcoming trials.
I was born and raised in Fresno CA, and if you're from anywhere around there you know that it's the city known as the armpit of California. Growing up in poverty we were not fortunate enough to have options of favorite meals but you can never go wrong with choosing tacos for every day meals! I will say that it made me highly grateful for any meals.
I am a PROUD member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I met my family in California and they so happened to move to Utah and that's what brought me here! I love my family and am super grateful for their love and examples to be a kind person and serve people in ways that I am able to. Because of their examples, It motivated me to work in health care where I can serve every day for a living and I enjoy every moment of it!
My dream vacation would be Bora Bora or anywhere that I would get a fun tropical experience! I also would love to one day ride elephants on some adventurous island.
Growing up I played baseball and quickly became a huge fan of the LA Dodgers and for that reason, I would bleed blue. I cheer BYU over the Utes every time, but I am able to be friends with Utes fans even though I know how loud Utes fans can be!
Baseball is clearly my favorite outdoor activity to play and of course, it's because I grew up being a baseball player! Some other activities I enjoy participating in are Pickle-Ball, Spike-Ball, Volleyball, hiking, and a ton of other things. I will say I have become pretty good at pickleball and have been playing for about three years. I have played in tournaments and received first-place winner once and second-place winner twice. I am a competitive player when it comes to pickleball!
My WHY in life is to make my family proud and to make as much of a positive influence to the people I come across! I want to feel I am worth the man my family has raised me to be. I want to spread positivity and light into this world! So what things remind me of my WHY? It's when I make someone smile, when I make someone laugh, when I make someone feel heard. My WHY is when I can serve another.
You can count on me to make a difference in the company in the way I treat patients and co-workers. I will encourage and suggest ways that might make the company run a little smoother and spread more positivity!
