Jamie graduated from C.E.T in Oxnard as a certified medical assistant. Her dream of working in the medical field started many years ago. She had all 4 of her children born premature and she spent a lot of time in the N.I.C.U units, which is where her dream of working in the medical field started. She put her dream on hold and raised her boys working for 15yrs in the grocery business as a cashier. When her youngest was old enough she decided to go back to school and change careers. She was introduced to Dr. Cernaianu by her school instructor and a friend who did her externship with HERA Health Care. “I heard amazing things from them both. That’s when I knew Dr. C had amazing values and I wanted to work for her.

Prior to becoming a mom and homeschooling her now sixteen- and eighteen-year-old sons, Jessica enjoyed helping patients at Internal Medicine, Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology medical practices. Jessica’s growing interests led her to become a Nationally Certified Surgical Technologist where she had the opportunity to assist intra-operatively while also deepening her understanding of pre and post-surgical patient care. Jessica has always believed in the importance of outstanding service, personal connection and sharing JOY whenever possible, and looks forward to being of service to the patients who seek care from Dr. Mirela Cernaianu and Dana Duarte, FNP, at HERA Health Care. In her free time, Jessica enjoys spending time with her husband of twenty-four years Chris and their sons, Cole and Landon, exercising with their rescued Australian Cattle Dog” Max” and being entertained by their two lop-eared bunnies, “Kara” and “Bonner”.
Receptionist part time
I am currently a student studying at Charter College in Oxnard to become a Certified Medical Administrative Assistant. I enjoy anything outdoors, from hiking, horseback riding, dirtbike riding, and anything I can do with my family because I have two young boys. I was previously an assistant manager for a company that focused on skincare and making people feel beautiful. I found Dr. Cernaianu’s practice and instantly loved what she has to offer. I had a passion for skincare from my previous job, and Dr. Cernaianu’s office provides a combination of various laser treatments amongst holistic restorative care to her patients. There are different treatments to fit different patient needs, and I love that!
