Our Exceptional Team Members:

With a very spoiled four-legged fur child named Finley, Tava enjoys spending time with her best friend, Blake, family and other friends - especially when the get together is outdoors and on the water.

Anita has been an integral part of our team from the very beginning - over 28 years ago!

In her spare time, Allie enjoys spending time with her husband, Tau, and their two boys. You can usually find them on the BMX race track – or kayaking or fishing or camping – anything outside! When she finally does move inside Allie also loves any type of crafting –no surprise because everything she does, she does well.

JASMINE RODRIQUEZ – ASSISTANT SCHEDULING & TREATMENT COORDINATOR

As she is very detail oriented and organized, Jasmine's policy is, “a well-informed patient is the best kind of patient!” Jasmine and her fiancé are often planning their next chance to explore the wonders of the world or, just as important, visiting family back home in Fort Myers, Florida.
