"Health Carousel is not only the best but they are the créme de la creme of healthcare agencies in the world that helps healthcare professionals just like me realize and help us achieve our American dream. What separates them from the pack is their unique approach to their employees on how to improve yourself everyday and be the best on what you do consistently."What do you like most about working with our client? "My facility in Iowa is a small community health center that is tightly connected to the community that feels like you are part of their community family. My colleagues here are simply the best. Honestly speaking they are not what I expected them to be. They are the most hardworking and the nicest people in any work environment that I've ever worked in. They helped me adjust in my first few months here in the USA and also assisted me with the procedures and protocols in the laboratory. My lab manager is the kindest and the coolest manager that I've had the chance to work with. She is very engaged in terms of helping each one of us and at the same time very approachable that if you ever had problems she will not hesitate to help you. Without their help I would be lost in the gaping abyss of my American dream."What do you like to do outside of work? "Life after work is the best part of working here. I currently have multiple hobbies to keep myself busy such as reading books. Time-to-time, I have the chance to visit my family in Chicago since they are not that far from me and keeps my burning desire to achieve my goals."What do you love most about being a MT? "Being a MT here in the USA isn't all about getting good paychecks and getting the best experience in advancing your career but it's all about helping and promoting the wellness of your patients that rely on you to do your best. The gist of being an MT is to help doctors, healthcare providers and also the nurses in properly diagnosing the patients by releasing quality, accurate and reliable laboratory results. I am proud to be part of the healthcare system that helps people on their healthcare needs."What is your favorite American food? "Pan-seared steak with asparagus."Tell us something unique about you! "I love to read and play video games in my spare time. I love to dance and also play instruments like guitar, piano, and drums. I have family here in the US. I have aunts, uncles, and cousins that live in Chicago and Connecticut, a brother in New Jersey, and some relatives and friends in California. I speak English, Filipino and a local dialect in Iloilo which is Hiligaynon, and I'm also learning to speak Spanish right now."What's your favorite quote? "One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away." � Stephen HawkingIf you are not a current PassportUSA employee, simply register with us today and we'll get your journey to the USA underway!
