Cecilia has been working for Dr Cernaianu since October 2015. She had just completed the medical assistant/phlebotomy program when she started. Before that, she worked for 13 years at Amgen in their café. “That’s where I learned my people skills,” she says. Cecilia is a single mom of two girls. She hopes to continue with her education when her daughters are older. She would like to become a vocational nurse or possibly a registered nurse. She also has three dogs that she enjoys walking and she loves going to music festivals.
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.”
Cynthia is a loving mother of two and wife who has a true passion to help those around her. She met Dr. Cernaianu while helping with the 5-year anniversary party in February 2018 and Cynthia's infectious smile, hard work and pleasant manner made such an impression that she was offered a front office assistant position at HERA Healthcare. Cynthia will go out of her way to help you and solve your problem.
Jamie graduated from C.E.T in Oxnard as a certified medical assistant. Her dream of working in the medical field started many years ago. She had all 4 of her children born premature and she spent a lot of time in the N.I.C.U units, which is where her dream of working in the medical field started. She put her dream on hold and raised her boys working for 15yrs in the grocery business as a cashier. When her youngest was old enough she decided to go back to school and change careers. She was introduced to Dr. Cernaianu by her school instructor and a friend who did her externship with HERA Health Care. “I heard amazing things from them both. That’s when I knew Dr. C had amazing values and I wanted to work for her. Being a part of Hera Healthcare is amazing."
Melissa Garcia is new to the practice. She is an administrative assistant and joined our staff late November 2018.

She is passionate about helping others and is currently a student at Moorpark College.
Mercedes has always wanted to work in the medical field but she became a mother at a very young age and decided to take care of her children first. As they became older it was time for her to pursuit her dream. “In my spare time I love to spend time with my husband and children, we love camping, the beach and baseball”. She recently graduated from the Conejo Valley Adult school as an Administrative and Clinical medical assistant as well as Phlebotomist. She was recommended to Dr. Cernaianu at a time when the practice needed help in the summer of 2017 and she impressed all staff with her calm demeanor, hard work and willingness to help. She joined the staff of HERA Health Care in Jan 2019.
