Fanny Papadimitriou is the Front Office Manager of the Community Health Center of West Palm Beach. Fanny at the age of 19, arrived in New York from Ecuador. Where she met her husband the father of her two blessings. In 1996, God opened the door for the family to move to Florida, and be neighbors of the church that have attended for twenty years. The church was the bridge to Fanny’s spiritual growth and led to her working here at CHC. Fourteen years ago the clinic needed a person for the office and the Lord selected Fanny. She says that the Lord did everything, because she had not applied to work. They called her from the church office to give to her a resignation letter to present to the school where she was working, and the rest is history. P.S. The clinic was part of a ministry at the church.
