Victor Santoro has been a Medical Doctor since 2001. Since younger years in middle and high school he’s been profoundly passionate about math and sciences, and graduated from a high ranking international medical school, being frequently honored with highest scores and awards.
Doctor Santoro worked as a primary and emergency care physician for 2 years, and Specialized in Nuclear Medicine Radiology in 2005, with focus on Diagnostic Oncology. Head of nuclear medicine departments in 3 different clinics between 2006 and 2015, founded an in-company committee in 2011 to improve technical staff labor conditions, and in 2012 founded a software development company focused on education and rehabilitation.
After personal life events in the last few years - including the loss of his grandmother to lung cancer and severe Alzheimer’s disease, and surviving a near fatal car accident - Doctor Santoro had a deep change in perspective about life, which guided him towards simplicity, spirituality, compassion, and the improvement of the human condition and quality of life. Since then, he started deeply believing he needs to apply all his skills and experience to help people that can’t help themselves.
He finally decided to join the Right at Home family in 2014, and a few months later founded the Sun City Center agency with his brother Vagner, where he’s currently responsible for the care management, initial assessments, customer service, and quality assurance.
Meet Victor Santoro, Owner of Right at Home Sun City Center
Vagner Santoro graduated in 2001 in Marketing Administration from one of the largest Universities in Brazil, with extensions in Financial Math and Business Development.
In 2001, Vagner founded a successful consulting company abroad, responsible for providing marketing resources and business intelligence to larger and well-established chemical companies, and in 2008 founded a logistics company as a strategic business unit, responsible for intelligent distribution solutions for the mining industry.
Married for almost 20 years to his dedicated wife, and blessed father of two daughters, Vagner has always been guided by a desire to share knowledge and personal time to help people. Since 2002 he’s been an active member of the local community, of several HOA administration boards, and of a committee to eradicate the use of asbestos in the construction sites, where he played a key part in advancing the quality of life for local families.
Destiny intervened, and Vagner decided to join his brother Victor in starting a new Right at Home agency in Sun City Center, where he strongly believes his dedication, hard work and connection with trustworthy partners will help change the industry standards towards faster and better responses to clients’ needs. He’s currently responsible for business administration and compliance, training, marketing and business development, in close relationship with trusted providers and local partners.
