Fun Fact: I am a perfect blend of white collar and blue collar. I spend all day cutting multi-million dollar deals and operate in the executive space but at night you can find me in my garage, covered in grease, working on my ATV’s and Dirt bikes. I love to spend time outside and work with my hands!

Mark Aquilino

Access Healthcare LLC – Chief Operating Officer


Tell us a bit about yourself:

Hello! My name is Mark and I am so grateful and excited to be joining the TCF family! MY family and I just moved from the Philadelphia area to York, PA and my children go to school at the Montessori Academy just up the street. We are looking to purchase a small farm in the area and live the self sustaining life we have always wanted to! I have an extensive background in the Hospitality Industry, spanning back to when I was just 14 years old! I followed my passion for food, service and hosting throughout my life and after a successful career in the industry, I started my own catering company, Broad Street Boards, which specializes in Charcuterie displays, both small and extremely large! When Covid hit, my catering business was heavily impacted and I pivoted to a new career path, utilizing my Management and Leadership experience, and began working in Healthcare Staffing. I started working with my current company, Access Healthcare, when there were only 5 of us on the team and we had only done $1M in revenue. Now, 3 years later, I have built our team up to nearly 50 people and our revenues are up to $60M. I serve as the Chief Operating Officer of the company and strive to forge new partnerships with other industry leaders each day. If you, or someone you know, knows a Travel Nurse that is looking for an agency that will prioritize them and pay them top dollar, Access Healthcare can make dreams come true!

What drew you to The Candy  Factory?

I visited numerous coworking spaces and knew from my first visit that TCF was the right place for me. The collaborative energy in the space is unmatched and I am so grateful for Anne who has cultivated such an incredible place for us to work (and play)!

Are you new to Coworking?

Yes! I have worked in office settings where others were doing work unrelated to mine but under the same umbrella. Now, everyone is doing something different!
