Maria Favotto Wells, MS, BSN, RN

Owner & Instructor

I am Maria and want to introduce myself and experience to you.  I have been in health care for over 30 years starting out my first job as a Medical Assistant before becoming an RN.  I am native to Florida and have lived and worked in Jacksonville/Orange Park for most of my life.  I have served on the Health & Human Services Committee for Clay County years ago and have enjoyed being a guest lecturer for JSO, local colleges and hospitals.  I have enjoyed my time precepting and mentoring students and really love to teach. I went to Jacksonville University for my BSN and Troy State University for my MS in Health Care Management.

I am married to my best friend, Brett, who is also a Registered Nurse and have a son who is A US Marine. I live on a farm with my dogs, cats and multiple farm animals.  Call Us to discuss your future in health care! I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story and helping you on your health care journey!!!
