Founder - President - CEO
Rina has been in the healthcare industry for over 15 years. Started as a caregiver herself she understands the importance of compassionate caring. Her hands-on experience gave her a unique viewpoint on caring not just for clients but for our caregivers as well. Appreciating other people’s hard work in keeping our elderly population safe is an important trait any leader should possess.
Rina loves the outdoors. She enjoys hiking and camping and always finds time to explore places off the beaten path. She reached the summit of Mt Kinabalu in Malaysia, the highest peak in Southeast Asia, and completed Utah’s Five-4-Five challenge by visiting five National Parks in five (5) days. She has crossed the Arctic Circle and hiked in Castner Glacier in Alaska, seeing the northern lights in the process. According to her, nothing beats feasting on the trout her son caught while ice fishing is her best memory of her Alaskan experience.
She is a proud mother to her son, Riley who played the role of “Donkey” in the school production of “Shrek the Musical, Jr.”.
Rina finds joy in exploring places by immersing in its culture, food and more importantly, interacting with its people. Rina has a proven track record and experience to lead, a true warrior spirit who is driven with a bigger purpose.

Carl Woodruff, Jr.
Marketer/ Care Manager
Carl is joining us as our Marketer/ Care Manager, and will be helping us expand relationships in the community.
Before joining Care America, Carl is a well-known celebrity in the Philippines who started his acting career at the age of 18. After years of hard work and passion, he won Best Actor Award in 2001 and started his own production company where he directed several films. In 2015, he joined the Independent Film Festival where he bagged the Best Director.
Even at the rate of his success in the film industry, he never left his commitment to serve in the medical field. Not known to a lot of people, Carl graduated from nursing which he decided to pursue by joining Care America.
He believes in finding balance both in mind and body, that is why you would see him at the gym during his free time. He is also a sports enthusiast and an avid NBA fan.
Lives by the quote "Success is not in the number of accomplishments but the intensity of the achievements". She has experience working in different fields; from being a screenwriter, a corporate manager, an English teacher in Thailand for 5 years and creating a book, for one of the schools there. She considers herself as free spirited and willing to try anything as long it’s not harmful to oneself and to others. Prefers outdoor activities because spending time with nature gives her zen and an animal enthusiast too.
It is also deep rooted in her values that family comes first which is one of the reasons why she loves working in Care America. It has more meaning to her than just a job. Aside from the fact that she has a soft heart for the elderly, she can empathize with families with Alzheimer and Dementia patients since she experienced it with her grandmother. Also, having both parents as seniors, it is easier to understand what the client needs and the importance of providing them with right carer to look after their love ones.
