Ankur Kapoor
Treasurer
akapoor@interimhealthcare.com
754-702-7030


For Ankur being a part of Interim HealthCare is a "purpose" before a business. The purpose is to assist children / family members who are torn between assisting aging parents/grandparents while taking care of their own children and lives be it in south Florida or anywhere else in the world. We want to be considered as the bonus children of the families that we serve. We understand from personal experience that it is not easy for children or grandchildren to relocate to South Florida to assist aging parents and grandparents. Ankur and his wife Shweta had relocated half way around the world in 2008 to help his mother who was battling cancer.  When his mom was declared cancer free 5 years later, he decided to relocate back to the US and to South Florida to start the local Interim HealthCare office.

Ankur has a Bachelors in Computer Engineering from University of Texas at El Paso in Texas, a Masters in Telecommunications from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX and an MBA in Finance and Strategy from the University of Texas at Austin in Texas.
