CareSouth’s Martinez receives SCPHCA Achievement Award
Daniela Martinez, CareSouth Carolina’s ROADS Administrative Coordinator, was recently honored by the South Carolina Primary Health Care Association as the Personal and Professional Achievement recipient at the SEA Retreat held in Charleston, SC. This recognition is a testament to Daniela’s exceptional work and her dedication to serving the community.
Daniela joined CareSouth Carolina in 2017 as an MOA (Medical Office Assistant) at one of the organization’s busiest offices. She then moved to the ROADS mobile program in 2019 as an administrative assistant, where she continued to excel. Her leadership skills were recognized, and she was promoted to Administrative Coordinator in 2021. Daniela leads the administrative team of the ROADS program and is the first point of contact for all 58 schools that the program serves.
Daniela’s outstanding work at CareSouth Carolina, particularly her involvement with the ROADS program, has positively impacted the community. The ROADS mobile initiative offers comprehensive, remote medical care to the communities it serves and features three fully-equipped medical exam units staffed with a nurse practitioner, LPN, and medical assistant.
As a bilingual individual originally from Zacatecas, Mexico, Daniela connects with Spanish-speaking families on a personal level and goes the extra mile to reach out to those families. She has long dreamed of becoming a United States citizen, and in 2022, she started the process of becoming one while still excelling in her position at CareSouth Carolina. On February 8, 2023, Daniela officially became a United States citizen and was recognized at the Naturalization Ceremony in Charleston, SC.
“Daniela is an example of how hard work and perseverance in the health center world can also lead to personal achievements,” CareSouth Carolina Associate Medical Director Jeri Andrews said in her nomination.
Daniela believes that her work at CareSouth Carolina has allowed her to connect with the community and make a significant impact.
Outside of work, Daniela enjoys spending time with her family, including her husband, stepdaughter, mom, and brother. She has accomplished a great deal both personally and professionally and continues to be an integral part of the CareSouth Carolina team.
