Joseph Marsalese - Owner/ Director of Business Development
Joseph graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science from Michigan State University where he worked in a Research Lab with a Grant funded by NASA to study motivation in Astronauts for the potential Mars expedition. Joseph also had the opportunity to travel with the MSU Varsity Hockey Team working on Sabermetrics and analyzing heart rate, rest periods, and over training. Joseph transitioned from the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program at Central Michigan University to study Health Administration and Business Information Systems at Wayne State University to earn his MBA. Having a health and business background was an essential part to opening a Home Care Business. Joseph believes that the most fulfilling careers and activities in life are those that aid other people. For this reason, he started a Non-Profit called Physical Education and Dietary Services (PEDS, Inc.) in 2017 that provides exercise and nutritional education to underprivileged children. PEDS currently aids children connected to a Non-Profit called Rochester Area Neighborhood House and continues to provide services. It is important that there is a strong connection between Qualicare and the surrounding community. Joseph regularly volunteers his time around the community through Non-Profits or tutoring Middle School and High School Students. Joseph loves traveling to new vacation areas, Scuba Diving, and watching every sport imaginable.
