Front Desk – Yaritza Rodriguez
Yaritza graduated from Everest Institute in 2015 with her Medical Assistant Diploma and shortly after became certified. Her career began at Providence Health & Services where she worked as an M.A. in the staffing department. She experienced working in different departments such as Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and Cardiology. She continued her career at Legacy Cardiology due to her desire to help people who were in the same shoes she once was in.
At 15 years old, Yaritza underwent Open-Heart Surgery to correct a birth defect and this is was when she became inspired with the emotional/physical support that was given to her by many health care providers. She is currently enrolled at Portland Community College and working towards her Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
When she’s not working, Yaritza loves to go on long walks with her two chihuahua’s and sister, hang out with her family and boyfriend, and go to the beach.
