Freddy Laguerre is a Miami native from Florida. He currently works in one of the cardiac institutes in south Florida and his passion is the cardiovascular system. He graduated from Broward College with highest honors with his Associates of Arts degree then continued his education at Florida International University where he graduated with his Bachelors of Science in Nursing Magna Cum Laude. Quickly after he knew he wanted to pursue higher education in the field of nursing so he pursued his dreams, attending FIU’s specialized BSN-DNP graduate nursing track. With a special curiosity in mental health he decided to extensively research Down syndrome and the occurrence of early onset Dementia for his capstone project. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said it best when he quoted “It is not enough to take steps which may someday lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise. Similarly, Mr. Laguerre is on the pursuit of his dreams, with each goal accomplished precisely.
