Born in Toluca, Mexico, Maria Fernanda Villasenor Jimenez migrated to the United States in 1999 at the age of four. She has primarily resided in the Clearwater, FL area, with a brief stint in North Carolina. Although Spanish was her first language, Maria mastered English through her education in American schools and by using American rock music as an additional tool for language development.

After high school, Maria earned a Medical Assistant Certificate. She then dedicated six years to a local dermatologist’s office, where she rose to the position of clinical supervisor. Yearning for more direct patient interaction and desiring a change from the office environment, Maria enrolled in EMT school at Pinellas Technical College. She subsequently joined Sunstar Paramedics, gaining hands-on patient care experience in one of the country’s busiest EMS systems.

Maria is a potent clinician, a dedicated employee, and a loving mother to her 5-year-old son, Reagan. Her fluency in both English and Spanish is an invaluable asset in the EMS field. Her unwavering commitment to upholding the core mission, vision, and values of Sunstar in delivering compassionate care has established her as a cherished employee and community asset.

Always eager to learn and progress professionally, Maria recently graduated from the School of EMS’s Paramedic program, all while working full-time night shifts at Sunstar. She is now preparing for her National Registry Paramedic Certification, aiming to become a Paramedic with Sunstar.

Outside of her demanding professional life, Maria, as a single mom, dedicates most of her free time to raising Reagan. She holds permanent residency in the United States and is set to commence her naturalization process for U.S. citizenship by year’s end.

The leadership team at Sunstar is extremely proud of Maria’s accomplishments and excited about what the future holds both professionally and personally as she works to become a Paramedic and US Citizen.
