4.     Bio 
 
I graduated from FSU in 2014 with a major in Business focusing on Risk Management & Insurance. Along the way I created a company that produced over $2,000,000 worth of Electronic Dance Music concerts. This eventually led me to an opportunity in NYC at Morgan Stanley’s headquarters. After a year as an analyst I realized the corporate environment was not for me. Excited with the opportunities to work with my father in our family’s Insurance Brokerage, I moved to Miami Beach in 2016. It was while working in our Insurance Brokerage, where a majority of our clientele are physicians, that I uncovered an opportunity in the Healthcare space. I created EZLabz, an on-demand concierge lab work service. We send Licensed and Insured nurses to your home or office to take your blood work and deliver it to the appropriate lab. This removes the need of going to Quest Diagnostics or LabCorp ever again.  
 
Any current students or alumni interested in finding out more about EZLabz should visit our website www.EZLabz.com or feel free to contact me at Jordan@EZLabz.com for advice! 
 
5.     Please share one of your favorite moments, experiences, or memories from your time at Miami Country Day. 
 
Favorite experience at MCDS had to be Break Time where we all had an opportunity to mingle with all our fellow classmates from every grade and eat Gene’s Cuisine’s undercooked cookies. 
 
6.     What is one experience from MCDS that you’ve taken with you and have referred back to as a resource or guide in your adult life? 

When I transitioned from Middle to Upper School, I found out how tough it was to get into AP/Honors classes. I quickly came to realize that nobody, but myself, could give me the opportunity to get placed into these courses. From that experience, I learned that I have to work smarter and harder than everyone else around me.  I have carried this mindset with me ever since and even though it was difficult at the time, I realize how important it was to learn to be self-reliant.  This has served me well in all facets of my professional life.
 
7.     What advice would you offer future MCDS alumni? 
 
I have to quote my father on this one: “If it’s to be, it’s up to me.” Nobody is going to make something happen other than yourself. So go out there and make it happen.
