Meet The Staff
KEVIN KOVAL, MS, MST
Since graduating from the University of New Mexico, Kevin has worked as a CPA, business consultant, and financial advisor for over 30 years. He holds master’s degrees in Financial Planning from the College of Financial Planning and in Taxation from Golden Gate University. Prior to moving to New Mexico, he was the partner of an international accounting and consulting firm in Los Angeles for several years.
Kevin became interested in senior care as he got involved in caring for his father and mother in New Mexico over the last ten years. That experience made him recognize the critical need for providers of exceptional senior care. He feels very fortunate and blessed to have the opportunity to own a company of EGIS‘ quality and reputation. Kevin has many years of experience in providing exceptional service to a variety of consulting clients. His business knowledge and experience coupled with the outstanding Care Managers and Care Providers who work for EGIS help ensure we continue to provide the very best of care to our clients.
Kevin enjoys hiking with his two Weimeraners, Zeke and Graycee, and his wife, Yvonne. He hopes one day to climb all of the Colorado “14ers.” He also enjoys hot yoga and pilates, going to the gym, and scuba diving.
Mario has been a part of the EGIS family for several years, though he is the newest addition to our care management team. In 2015, Mario received an Associate’s Degree in Spanish Language and in 2016, he received an Associate’s Degree in Human Services from Santa Fe Community College. In pursuing his dream to work with vulnerable populations, Mario studied Social Work and in May 2020, Mario received his Master’s Degree in Social Work with a concentration in Clinical Work from New Mexico Highlands University.
In his studies and throughout his career, Mario has learned the importance of supporting elders and their families in their own environments, thus he has chosen to work with older adults to promote their independence, autonomy and dignity as well as advocating for them when necessary in order to foster physical and emotional stability.
