Meet Carolina M. Veira, Hispanic Woman of Distinction, Director Community & Corporate Partnerships CareMax, Inc.

“There is no limit to what we can accomplish together. And we do it with elegance, love and empathy – the womanly way.”

Carolina Veira has spearheaded various community service projects by forming partnerships between national and local companies and organizations to bring much-needed resources to people in need.  Her career has spanned the many areas of the healthcare industry from budgeting, finance, and strategic planning.

She currently leads “Hispanic Star Miami,” a hub of all volunteer professionals working together to elevate the Hispanic community and mitigate consequences of COVID-19 in South Florida. To this end, Carolina and her team distributed products to over 20,000 families during the pandemic. In addition, Carolina led the delivery of over 2000 hot meals and PPE to healthcare heroes in five hospitals.

CareMax, Inc., who recently merged with IMC Health, is where Carolina continues to create opportunities for staff to give back to the community. In addition, she creates webinars about voting, mental health, mindful eating, as well as conversations about leadership, diversity, inclusion, and empathy. Additionally, she connects with small businesses to partner with CareMax’s programs to support patients and their families. She is also host of “¡Hablemos!” a weekly talk show on LinkedIn.  The focus is upon having conversations with professionals across the United States who share stories of challenges and successes.

In addition to her daily work, Carolina, a native of Ecuador, is involved with helping to provide educational and leadership tools and skills to impoverished children in Ecuador, as well as providing holiday season toys and food.  She serves as a board member of “Deliver the Dream,” a philanthropic organization that organizes fun-filled weekends for families who are dealing with life-altering illnesses, “Accountable Impact”, an organization that activates local networks and showcases the SDGs framework as a blueprint for the future.  And Carolina is active in the “South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce,” the “Latin American Business Association,” and the “Hispanic Star Alliance.” She says that her background in finance helps her understand the challenges of discovering solutions in a very impactful, sustainable way where everyone wins.

Carolina earned her Accounting and her Business Management at D’Youville Colllege in Buffalo, N.Y., and her MBA in 2011.  She has been awarded the “Hispanic Business Champion Award,” the “Excellency in Advocacy Award,” and she was recognized in the “Profiles in Diversity Journal: Latino Leaders Worth Watching Award.”

Carolina says that she greatly admires the many powerful women who helped pave her way, including her mother, her grade school teacher, and her friends who uplifted her in different stages of her life.  This dynamic woman resides in Pembroke Pines, speaks three languages, and in her rare spare time, she enjoys tennis, reading, and watching movies.
