As Medical Assistant (MA) and Sterile Processing Technician III (CRSPT, III), Alicia Parmele focuses on operating room safety and cleanliness. Starting in January 2016, Alicia feels right at home and loves the amazing patients she cares for on a daily basis. Alicia feels as if the staff is like family with their warmth and cheerfulness. She appreciates the fact that PVPS is in sunny Florida, which is her home, having been born in West Palm Beach. After spending 30 years in Michigan freezing, Alicia is gratefully back at home. She can be found anywhere there is sand, sun and the great outdoors. If she’s not outdoors, Alicia is at home grilling, cooking, baking and organizing. Family means everything to Alicia and she cherishes her large family of 9 siblings. However, it’s her beautiful, little girl who is everything joyous and makes everything worthwhile in her life.
