Ivan Cuartas, CTRS

Director of Therapeutic Recreation

Director of Therapeutic Recreation

Ivan chose healthcare as a career about six years ago in order to make a difference. He joined therapeutic recreation to remind our residents about the sunny side of life, even when there are storm clouds passing by. Utilizing his six-plus years of experience, he aims to bring cultural festivities, learning opportunities, and creativity to the next level, with newly structured programs and personalized treatments. He always loved the world of therapeutics and helping people learn and practice new skills. Everyone is able to do something today that you couldn't do yesterday. His favorite part about being an Activities Director is seeing people get excited when they hear a special activity is taking place. It is like seeing someone find out they are going to an amusement park. In his spare time he travels, visits museums, and exercises. He has been traveling to other countries where he has seen things and learned so much in museums you can't imagine, and he practices three martial arts. Everyone has talents and interests worth exploring.
