With her husband working all the time, Torrez felt like a “single mom”. They just weren’t happy with the lifestyle and decided to do some “soul-searching”. That was when a family friend suggested they open a business. After a little research, Torrez found BrightStar and knew she had found her business.
Beginning her career as a schoolteacher and subsequent home-maker, Torrez had no medical experience prior to considering BrightStar Care. When she was making her final decision regarding what franchise to pursue, she observed that while other businesses were very eager to have her on board as a partner, BrightStar Care made a concerted effort to find out more about her motives and goals. Once Torrez became involved, she reverted back to her teaching background and turned the experience of opening her new business into an opportunity to educate those on her team.
