Amerihealth Head ShotMarisa Alvarez Martinez is the proud owner of Amerihealth Home Care Agency in Miami Florida. Her zeal for entrepreneurism began at an early age as she spent countless summers learning the importance of hard work while working under the tutelage of her Father’s successful air conditioning business. Recognizing the undeniable talent of their daughter and her strong desire to succeed, Marisa’s parents invested in her education by sending her to Gulliver Preparatory High school where she graduated with honors. Next, she continued her education by earning a degree in Business Administration from Florida International University where she also graduated with honors. Additionally, Marisa is a results-oriented professional with an impressive career in her 15 plus years in corporate America. Marisa made a mark specifically in the competitive pharmaceutical industry of Dermatology and Aesthetic divisions for some of the world leaders in these industries such as Sanofi-Aventis. She consistently demonstrated strong leadership and relentlessly exceeded expectations in every position throughout her impressive management and marketing career. After experiencing consistent success in corporate America she realized that she wanted more and began looking for opportunities to make a difference in the lives of people. This was confirmed when her 87 year old grandmother became ill and the family recognized that they needed help with her care. The task of locating a trusted caregiver became critical and proved challenging. After making several attempts to find the right caregiver they could trust, Marisa recognized that there was a serious need in the Miami community for compassionate and trusting caregivers that families could count on. Out of her own family’s health crisis, the inspiration was birthed in Marisa’s heart to start Amerihealth in 2007. Her desire was to make a difference in her own life and more specifically in the lives of the elderly population which today has become a reality. Today Marisa’s grandmother is Amerihealth’s “Cover Girl” as she is featured on the brochures and website as a constant reminder of Marisa’s original inspiration for her business. Her proudest accomplishment is being a mother of three lovely daughters, Sabrina, Gabriella and Abigail. Marisa hopes that her daughters when ready, will one day continue her legacy of “helping others”.
