What drew you to Health Carousel? “Health Carousel is very supportive in getting my American Dream to become into reality! Health Carousel is very aggressive in terms of documentation completion which assists me and makes me more motivated in achieving my ultimate goal to successfully work in the land flowing with milk and honey with my family. Health Carousel is fast and precise in their instructions in guiding me throughout my journey from American Samoa, back to my home country, Philippines until I reached the lovely country road of West Virginia, with full support, both physically and emotionally.”
What do you like most about working with our client? “I am so proud, honored, and privileged that Health Carousel has brought me to this well-advanced, state-of-the-art number one hospital in West Virginia. It is a very huge facility with more than what I was expecting. Co-workers are very professional in dealing with their new co-workers.”
What is your favorite American food? “The family loves fried chicken and one of the the most tasty and crunchy fast food chicken restaurants that my kids love to visit and dine in is Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen.”
What do you love most about being a RN? “Being an operating room nurse, taking care of our patients before, under, and after sedation is a challenge in which I love most.”
Tell us something unique about you! “I came from one of the very small islands in Bohol, Philippines. We call it ‘Isla’. The islet is surrounded by white sand beaches and clear ocean water. I speak Bisaya or Cebuano. I married a Cebuano and started to build up a family in Talisay City, Cebu, far from my place, thus the family is used to travel by small boats to different sizes of water transportation.
I was offered a job as an operating room nurse in American Samoa, so me and my husband decided to bring the whole family, including my three kids to American Samoa looking for a greener pasture and I was fortunate enough to give birth to another beautiful child, an American-Samoan baby girl. Our journey in American Samoa was so fast that the family did not even realized that the kids are getting bigger and us getting older.
God had plans prepared for us in a very perfect time when Health Carousel/Passport USA came our way. The agency opened its door to us to start a new beginning and live in a place where greater opportunities lie ahead of us.
Living nowadays in ‘The Land Flowing With Milk and Honey’ is a blessing! Health Carousel/Passport USA is a blessing for the whole family. From the family’s journey from small boats to different sizes of water transportation, we had come to experience also to travel from small planes to different sizes of air transportation.
Thank you very much Health Carousel/Passport USA for the great experience!”
