Frances

Frances joined Hera Healthcare in Oct 2017. “My job as Certified Medical Assistant includes both back and front office. What I love most about my work is interacting with our patients. I love the variety of services our office provides and the satisfaction I hear from our patients after they receive a treatment or procedure and when a new Mom comes back to the office with her little bundle of joy after she gives birth. Nothing can be more precious. I graduated from Conejo Valley Adult Education with CMA, AMA & EHR certifications following career break to raise my children and support my husband in his career. When I returned to school I wanted to focus on either Gynecology or Dermatology. Hera Healthcare gives me both.” Her hobbies include travelling the world, playing golf, watching baseball (go Dodgers) and most people don’t know that she has won 5 All-Ireland championships in Camogie (a sport that is a cross between lacrosse and field Hockey from her home country, Ireland). She enjoys going to the movies, socializing with her friends and watching her kids play sports. “My life is full and I love every minute of it.”
