Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to celebrate and recognize the many contributions of individuals of Hispanic Heritage. At Family First Health, we are excited to shine a light on some of our Hispanic team members who contribute to our work and community every day.
Today’s spotlight is on Alex Nunez, who is a Medical Receptionist/Medical Assistant on our Hanover Medical team. Read more about Alex’s Hispanic Heritage, and how it influences her work.
From what country do you or your family originate?
What does your heritage and Hispanic Heritage Month mean to you?
Hispanic Heritage Month, I believe, is a way to honor our culture, and a way to celebrate and share our diversity in the community. I treasure the culture and values inherited from my parents and take PRIDE in being able to pass them on to my children so that they never forget their heritage.
How does your heritage influence the work you do?
I am proud of my roots that taught me the true meaning of serving others. With Family First Health and our mission, I am able to do that every single day.
What are some of your favorite family and/or cultural traditions?
Something that I absolutely love from my culture is the FOOD! Another favorite tradition is the way we celebrate quinceñeras, weddings, and, in general, any celebration! There is always color and music to celebrate one another, I love it!
What is something you wish others knew about Hispanic Heritage?
I wish others knew how hardworking and family oriented we are.
