Praveen Vaida


Praveen Vaida is passionate about making a difference in the lives of seniors and their families. Born and raised in India, where caring for aging family members at home is deeply ingrained in the culture, Praveen brings a unique perspective to the senior care industry. Drawing on his extensive experience in the corporate world and his deep personal commitment to family care, Praveen, as the owner of Right At Home Columbus, is dedicated to providing high-quality, compassionate senior care services.

After a successful career as an engineer and business development manager at a Fortune 500 company, Praveen took a step back to reflect on his life and purpose. He wanted to make a meaningful impact on the community through operating a small business and providing local employment. Praveen's decision to enter senior care was sparked by a personal experience. His grandmother, a diabetic with an infected wound, required surgery that resulted in the amputation of her leg. As is customary in India, Praveen's mother and aunts took on the responsibility of caring for his grandmother during her recovery. Witnessing the challenges they faced firsthand, Praveen realized the need for high-quality care and support for seniors and their families.

He leverages his operational expertise from the corporate world with the invaluable knowledge gained from caring for his own grandparents. This unique blend of professional acumen and personal experience allows him to deliver a service that is both competent and compassionate.

Kim Johnson

General Manager

Kim, a proud native of Findlay, Ohio, graduated from Findlay High School in 1990. Her journey led her to the U.S. Navy, where she served as a Cryptologic Technician for nearly a decade, stationed in diverse locations like Washington, D.C. (twice!), Rota, Spain, and various smaller duty stations worldwide.

During her illustrious Navy career, Kim achieved remarkable success, standing out as a high-performing individual. She was selected as Sailor of The Year for her command in one remarkable year, an achievement that earned her a prestigious Navy Commendation Medal.

A dedicated learner, Kim pursued higher education across the globe, ultimately earning her degree from the University of Phoenix. Her commitment to knowledge remains strong, as she continues to take occasional classes to expand her expertise.

In 2001, Kim embraced a new role — that of a mother to her daughter, Hope, and in 2002, to her son, Vincent. Family is Kim's top priority, and she cherishes her time with her husband and children.
As her kids grew, Kim decided to venture into healthcare. Armed with national certifications in Phlebotomy, Certified Clinical Medical Assistance, Certified Nursing Assistance, IV Therapy Technician, and ACLS, she also added Notary Public credentials to her repertoire. With over 14 years of experience in both clinical and administrative healthcare roles, Kim is deeply passionate about enhancing the quality of healthcare and positively impacting lives.

After living in two other countries and six other states, Kim's husband was offered a transfer that would allow them to move back to her home state of Ohio. A few years ago, they happily returned, rekindling their connection with Ohio.

When not immersed in healthcare, Kim and Danny share a love for antiquing, travel, art, movies, and Renaissance Faires. Kim, an Anglophile, avid reader, music enthusiast, and animal lover, has a trove of fascinating experiences, including meeting Charlton Heston and a sitting president and vice president. Not to mention her daring rollerblading exploits from the top floor to the basement of the Pentagon!

Kim's zest for life, diverse experiences, and outstanding achievements make her a valuable asset in any setting.

Jacqueline Burgess

Scheduling Coordinator

Meet Jacquline Burgess, my dedication is in the field of healthcare and caregiving. My commitment to excellence and passion for developing great caregivers truly stands out.
My credentials as a Certified Medical Assistant, along with certifications in Alzheimer's and dementia training through the Alzheimer's Association, demonstrate my commitment to continuous learning and professional growth. Additionally, management certification with Navarre and involvement as a member of the Board of Trustees in the village of Ashley highlight my leadership capabilities and contributions to my community.

Growing up in Columbus, Ohio, attended Whetstone High School and Columbus State University. My transition into healthcare, starting as a Resident Assistant and later evolving into a scheduling Coordinator, reflects my genuine compassion for the elderly and dedication to making a positive impact in their lives.

My passion and wanting to grow in this field took me to Bishop Gadsden, a Life Care Plan Community in Charleston, SC, where I played a pivotal role in turning around the home care program and serving Armed Forces retirees, further underscores my leadership and commitment to serving with integrity, wise stewardship, and a generous spirit.

Beyond my professional endeavors, my devotion to my family, including my four children and precious grandchildren Nova and Meilani, speaks volumes about my character and values. My experiences traveling with my kids for their sports activities, particularly the memorable moments in upstate New York at Cooperstown, highlight the importance of family bonds and creating lasting memories.

In my leisure time, I find joy in simple pleasures like working in the yard, tending to our two dogs, and indulging in activities like kayaking and reading. My well-rounded interests and pursuits showcase my zest for life and my appreciation for the beauty of nature and literature.

My dedication, resilience, and passion for caregiving are truly admirable. My commitment to nurturing caregivers and ensuring quality care for clients is a testament to my outstanding character and professional ethos.
