Zorayada Kim, CMA

Medical Marijuana Specialist located in Volusia County, Ormond Beach, FL

About Kim

Zorayda joined Ormond Internal Medicine in 2017, after an extensive healthcare career here in the United States, in Thailand and in her home country of the Philippines. She said of her first days with Dr. van Diepen’s primary care practice: “I found likeminded individuals that I truly feel share my passion for helping those in need.”

With the advent of legalization of the use of medical marijuana in the State of Florida, Florida Compassionate Care Centers was conceived and Zorayda, with her extensive work in primary care and her caring approach, was a natural selection as the first Marijuana Health Specialist. 

Of the move, she says: “I’m able to combine my skills in diagnosis and care of a wide array of medical conditions with my passion for a more natural approach to medicine – with the result that I am now able to truly make a difference in our patients’ lives.”

Ms. Kim knew she wanted to be a Nurse at a very young age, when growing up in the Philippines. She got her nursing Bachelor’s degree, did hospital internship, and managed her family’s Wellness business. It was here where she first engaged in more natural remedies in healthcare. When she and her family moved to the US, she got her certification as Medical Assistant at Health Tech Georgia. Since then she has worked over 10 years in various practices ranging from podiatry or pediatrics to family medicine.
