Jose and Kim are thrilled to be residents of Coral Springs for 11 years now. Kim was raised here, and is a graduate of Taravella high school. Jose is also a Floridian by birth. Together, the couple have two kids, Abby, 13, Joey, 11, and a dog, Mickey.
Jose is a Senior Manager with an Ecommerce company, while Kim is a Nurse Practitioner and Beachbody coach.
Abby is in the seventh grade at Coral Springs Middle School. Joey is in the fifth grade at Country Hills Elementary. Both siblings agree that math is their favorite subject. When they aren’t involved in their studies, Abby is part of the school band, dances with a local studio, and is an artist who also loves sewing and baking. She says, “”Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” Joey plays Tackle Football with the Parkland Rangers, and is also a teammate with North Springs Baseball and the Coral Springs Basketball Club. Known as the family jokester, he tells us, “Happiness is making someone laugh!“
Jose was the captain of his high school football team and now coaches Joey with tackle football, baseball, and basketball. He shares, “Talent wins games but teamwork and intelligence win championships.” In his free time, he enjoys running, golfing, and racing with Kim. Jose has completed 11 half marathons, 2 full marathons, and 2 triathlons.
Kim enjoys working as a Team Beachbody coach. She helps her customers reach their nutrition and fitness goals through online workouts, motivation, nutrition support, and accountability. Kim has completed 2 marathons, over 25 half marathons, 10 triathlons, Ironman 70.3, and is also a physique competitor. Kim is also a family nurse practitioner working in Coral Springs. She loves inspiring others to be the best version of themselves, and advises everyone to, “Surround yourself with only the people who will lift you higher.”
When asked what they love about Coral Springs, Kim replies, “The people! My hometown is filled with so many caring, friendly people. Wherever we go we always bump into someone we know from either sports, school, my clinic, or childhood friends.” José agrees and is also very happy to be part of our community. He says, “It’s definitely a family friendly atmosphere and a wonderful place to raise children. We have beautiful parks, amazing schools, and wonderful opportunities for sports.”
“We also love vacationing and spending time with our family and friends,” Kim says. “Every summer we rent a cabin in the Georgia mountains for hiking, tubing, apple picking, gem mining, boating, and enjoying the beauty of the mountain life. We also enjoy skiing as a family.”
Since the start of the pandemic, Jose has been working from home. Kim shares, “With all of us spending more time at home together, we have new insights into each others lives and this has strengthened our bond as a family. We have enjoyed the time together with less everyday hustle of commutes and extracurricular activities.”
