Sonia Afonso loves working here at vybe urgent care because there’s something new for her to learn every day. But there’s more to this radiologic technologist than her job. Get to know her:
Why did you decide to work in healthcare?
I decided to work in healthcare because I want to help people get better and feel better about themselves.
What do you like most about working at vybe?
What I like most about working at vybe is that I get to do so much more than my role as a radiologic technologist such as assisting in sutures or I&D procedures. I continue to learn something new every day whether it’s front desk things or learning from our providers.
What’s your favorite area of Philadelphia?
My favorite area is Center City because it is rich in culture, history, and is surrounded by beautiful architecture.
What’s your favorite Philly sports team or event?
I like the Phillies and the Flyers.
What’s your favorite workout song?
I love listening to Limbo by Daddy Yankee and Calabria by Enur while working out.
What’s on your bucket list?
I would love to travel to different countries more often. I want to backpack through Europe and Asia. I’d like to float in the Red Sea. I want to be able to learn, speak, and write in Mandarin.
What show do you binge-watch?
I like to watch Jane the Virgin, A Series of Unfortunate Events with my children, Grey’s Anatomy, and Being Mary Jane.
What’s your most helpful health tip?
I would have to say find time to take care of yourself both physically and mentally. Whether it’s going to the nail salon to pamper yourself, getting a good amount of sleep, or eating a healthy meal. I think it is important to put yourself first.
How do you find your vybe? (How do you stay healthy?)
I work out 3 times a week, do yoga, and meditate when I can.
