As CEO of A.M. P. Smart Business, Anthony is focused on building and maintaining relationships with each of our clients to ensure your practice needs are a priority. He embraces collaboration and handpicks each one of our team members to ensure they are the best fit to not only carry out the values of this company, but also provide the highest quality of service.

Anthony has worked in the health industry since 2005

He is familiar with the layers of complexity, security, uncertainty, and need for responsiveness that comes into play when managing a medical or mental health practice. 

He occupied several roles in his professional experience including:

Data Analyst | Client Executive | Operations Manager | Divisional Manager | Medical Billing Specialist

The greatest lessons learned throughout his experience in this field is the importance of   clear communication, effective processes, and creative problem solving.


After leaving corporate healthcare in 2018

Anthony partnered with his wife to build a group mental health practice in California that now has two locations and a team that is continuing to grow.

He continues to oversee the financial health and day-to-day operations of this practice including:

Billing | Financial Reporting | Systems and Processes | HIPAA Compliance



Anthony is passionate about helping providers like you navigate the industry. It can be daunting as a provider to manage all the details of your practice. He gets it. That’s why he now offers services to help you work through barriers, implement smart business solutions, and embrace your entrepreneurial mindset so you can build  a practice that works for you.

“Anthony understands the provider perspective and is ready to offer providers like you the same attention to detail and quality he expects in his own practice.”



In addition to his role at a.m.p Smart business




Anthony has been instrumental in building Small Town Counseling with his wife/CEO Alyssa Najera, LCSW. Small Town Counseling is a group private practice that offers mental health services and training, internship opportunities, and educational workshops.
