"We were working in the fields, and I remember wanting education, college."

Alberto Vasquez—number 10 of 15 children—spent much of his youth working in the farm fields of Idaho and Oregon. His dream and plan for a better future was a college education. Today, with a master’s degree and decades of healthcare leadership experience, Alberto serves not only as a hospital administrator, but as a martial-arts teacher and mentor to pay it forward and inspire kids in his community.
