Mayra Ortiz wants everyone to feel welcome as they walk into Promise Community Health Center in Sioux Center.
She also wants to bring a passion for helping people in need.
Mayra, who is bilingual in English and Spanish, recently assumed the role of receptionist at Promise.
“I like the vision that Promise stands behind – that together we deliver the promise of a healthier tomorrow,” Mayra said. “Even more so, I like the fact that you will not be turned down for quality health care due to lack of insurance or financial situation.”
Mayra, who grew up in Sioux Center and graduated from Sioux Center High School in 2011, brings a variety of customer service experience to the the position. She worked as a cashier during high school at Las Palmas Mexican Grocery in Sioux Center. She served as a customer service teller at Northwest Bank in Sioux Center, 2015-16. After attending classes for a year at Northwest Iowa College in Sheldon, she started working as a customer service representative at Staples Promotional Products in Orange City in March.
She thought her background would make her a good fit for the receptionist position at Promise.
“Being the first person to help the patients when they walk in and making them feel welcome has always been important to me,” she said.
