Meet the Family Behind Uppercentile
Greetings to our lovely customers, followers, and those just stopping by to say hello!
We're excited to take a moment today to introduce you to the beating heart behind Uppercentile. We are Joseph Letke and Ivonne Arias Letke, a husband and wife duo, leading our family business with passion and commitment.
Uppercentile isn't just a store for us; it's a manifestation of our dreams, experiences, and a profound love for service.
Coming from families of clinicians and allied health professionals, we've always felt a deep connection to the healthcare industry.
More About Us
Joseph's mother served as a Registered Nurse for over 26 years in Maryland, pouring her dedication and care into every patient she met. Following a similar path, Ivonne is currently attending CSUN, with her sights set on becoming a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). This commitment to service and care is in our DNA, and it shapes the ethos of Uppercentile.
Before Uppercentile, Joseph honed his skills as a market researcher and consultant, providing valuable insights to various hospitals across the country. His work is about supporting healthcare organizations with their purchasing decisions - a field where transparency, trust, and a people-first approach matter significantly. These values are echoed in every aspect of Uppercentile. Because we believe in the power of connection, in the idea that "people want to buy from people". And that’s what we offer: a human touch, a genuine relationship, and a commitment to be there for you.
But Uppercentile isn't our only family venture. We are also the proud co-founders of Goodsides, a company providing video production services to public institutions and government agencies. Like Uppercentile, Goodsides is built on the foundation of service, dedication, and an unwavering commitment to delivering the best to our clients.
At Uppercentile, we strive to combine our passions and personal experiences to create an unmatched shopping experience for you.
We firmly believe in the power of excellent customer service and the joy it can bring to people's lives. It’s not just about the transaction for us; it’s about the relationships we build along the way, the smiles we bring to faces, and the satisfaction we can provide.
Apart from our work, we have a shared love for traveling and visiting different parts of the US. Here's a photo from a family trip to Hawaii taken on film:
We cherish the diversity of landscapes, cultures, and people this wonderful country offers. And, of course, we draw inspiration from every trip for our Uppercentile offerings.
We invite you to become a part of our Uppercentile family.
Visit us in Hollywood, where you can experience firsthand the dedication, passion, and love that we pour into our business. We can't wait to meet you and share the magic of Uppercentile with you.
Until then, stay tuned, stay safe, and keep spreading joy!
