A little more on me and my background that will help you in getting to know who I am and what I stand for when it comes to working with you as a client. I grew up in Gardena and I graduated from Gardena High School here in the South Bay. After high school, I fulfilled my dream to serve my country, having gone to Fort Jackson, South Carolina to begin my three year active duty assignment. During my military service I achieved the Non-Commissioned officers (NCO) rank of E-5 (Sergeant) and I served in one military campaign, ‘Operation Just Cause’ in Panama. Amongst my military medals and awards I have been decorated with the US Army Commendation Medal, the US Army Achievement Medal, the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, the National Defense Medal, the NCO Professional Development Ribbon and more. After leaving the military, I opted to purse a formal education and I had the honor of attending the University of Southern California (USC) where I obtained my Bachelors of Science degree in the field of Occupational Therapy. I have practiced in many clinical settings over the years to include working at the Cedars Sinai Medical Center and the Los Angeles County USC Medical Center. As an aside, I was also able to visit Africa (Ghana) where I participated in a Capstone Program with USC as a Licensed Occupational Therapist working with disabled children. In continuing my formal education I attended the California State University, Dominguez Hills where I obtained a post graduate degree in business. I used my Masters of Business Administration (MBA) and my clinical knowledge to open many businesses in the Los Angeles area to include an outpatient clinic, a certified/accredited by Medicare home health agency and a registry company. I also have a few affiliations with social groups to include being a Master Mason/Past Master with the Glendale Masonic Lodge #368 and member of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society.
Insofar as my family, I have been privileged in marrying an amazing woman, Diana. My wife who is a Physical Therapist and soon to be a Yoga Teacher has been very supportive! We have been married for 14 years and we have two sons, Ryan (24) and Ralph Jr. (12). We have lived in Simi Valley for the past eight years and we love it! As another aside, I took up Tae Kwon Do with our youngest son, and through our determination we both achieved our First Dan, Black Belt. Our family also enjoys participating in 5K, 10K, and yes an occasional half marathon when time permits with Disneyland in Anaheim being a favorite run venue.
I feel that my life achievements and my goal to thrive and work for my clients will make me the reason why you to choose to work with me! I feel that knowing that I have the business background and the perseverance to make things happen will be a definite reason for choosing to work with me, Ralph Santos.
