Andres (Andy) Cruz is a graduate of The University of Texas at San Antonio, having attained Bachelors of Arts Degrees, both in Psychology and English Literature, with a Minor in Marketing.
Being raised in a household of a Medical Doctor and Registered Nurse, it was natural that Andy learned about caring. While completing his university studies, Andy worked a 4 month internship as a Case Worker with the Department of Health and Human Services. Being bilingual, Andy was asked to support the rural Central Texas communities with eligibility for the state monitored personal care services. This internship gave Andy tremendous insight to the significant needs and obstacles facing the individuals he now serves through Pride.
Prior to joining his mother’s (Cindy Cruz, Rn) mission, Andy held positions of responsibility as Co-owner of ROCK-N-JAVA CAFE and as Assistant Vice President at IBC Bank. In 2003, Andy brought his business and professional experience to Pride PHC Services, Inc. Andy currently serves as the Alternate Administrator/CFO, as well as the Director of Community Care. Andy shares his mother’s vision of providing quality care, while supporting local and national charitable organizations as they strive for disease cures and provide resources for the infirm and growing senior population.
