Be present and focus on how to build bridges where there are few or none.
Honor cultures and respect the differences in ourselves and everyone we serve.
Remember that at our foundation we exist to serve, to provide solutions, to make connection and communication easier and more enjoyable.
Be the change you seek in the world. Know that you can always grow and that knowledge can only help you get there.
They are inevitable, but we can always control our attitude, and that makes all the difference with the outcome.
Here is what we do and how we are different:
Our company was founded by CEO Nicole Montiel LDH in Indianapolis, IN. She has a passion for all language and has perfected her Spanish through formal studies of Spanish literature and Spanish language and also many cultural studies and experiences abroad. In 2007, she began a career in the field of dentistry. She then quickly realized what a challenge providing adequate patient care to Spanish-speaking patients seemed to be for many providers who didn’t speak the language. Patient compliance and treatment plan acceptance was much lower among this population, and Nicole knew that it was because of a lack of understanding, by the patient and also by the provider who didn’t understand cultural differences. Since then she has made it her mission to advocate for patient education to all who do have the resources to give it. This has included teaching continuing education Spanish courses for her colleagues and then expanding to other professional fields. Aside from day to day operations with ¡Anda!, Nicole enjoys spending time with her children and sharing with them at every opportunity the beauty in other cultures. Our logo is inspired of one of her cultural fascinations: the embroidered Tenango Bird of Tenango de Doria, Hidalgo, Mexico.
