Ivan- Referral Coordinator
I consider myself very personable with an uncanny ability to get along with everyone. I have two pugs named Bacon and Eggs and a husky named Tank; they can make any day better. I love to make people laugh. Some say I'm the Martha Stewart of baking!
I have been with Harvey Pediatrics since December 2019 and absolutely love working here. I have previously worked in the Walmart Corporate Offices in Bentonville for almost 20 years with other medical offices as a receptionist or front office coordinator. I have been in NWA since the mid-80s when my family moved here from Las Vegas, NV. I have one beautiful daughter and son in law who have 3 daughters of their own. My goal is to leave everyone I meet with a smile on their face.
I have been working for Harvey Pediatrics since November of 2019 and I love every second of it. I am currently enrolled at Northwest Arkansas Community College where I am studying to be a nurse. I am an advocate for bully prevention. In 2018, I put together a bully prevention team with the Oklahoma State Board of Education to help put a stop to bullying. I was a pageant girl my entire life; I completed in Miss Oklahoma's Outstanding Teen and Miss Oklahoma. Fun fact: I helped crown Savvy Shields, Miss America 2018, in her first-ever teen pageant. One of my passions includes singing and entertaining. I have auditioned for American Idol and The Voice. I am the queen of "Choose Kindness" and I am always reminding others to choose kindness as well.
I was born in Mexico and came to the USA in 2001 with my family; English is my second language and I continue to learn every single day. I lived in Virginia for 14 years where I graduated High School in 2005 and Med Tech Institute as a Medical Assistant in 2011. I have been working in the medical field ever since as a receptionist and medical assistant. I have learned so much and continue to learn. I joined Harvey Pediatrics in January of 2018 and I love working with everyone in the practice. My husband and I moved to Arkansas in 2014 to be closer to our family; although we don't have any kids, we have a very spoiled Shih Tzu mix puppy named "Mimi" and whom we love so much.
