About Joining Our Talented Team

Kristen Carlson


Right at Home Galveston and Brazoria Counties is a locally owned and operated business providing in-home living and companion services. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for those we serve. We do this by providing high quality caregivers to serve you.

Right At Home, Greater Galveston area is locally owned and operated by Kristen Carlson. Prior to opening the Galveston RAH office, Kristen worked for over twelve years in medical management (8 years at the University of Texas Medical Branch and 5 years at the Center of Reproductive Medicine). Prior to moving to Galveston, she worked as a Financial Analyst at First Boston Corp in New York City. Kristen has a bachelor's degree in Sociology and an MBA from University of Houston Clear Lake.

Kristen has lived in Galveston since 1993. Kristen is actively involved in the Rotary Club of Galveston and was named Most Valuable Member in June 2009. She most recently served as President of the club 2017-2018 and served on the Board of Directors from 2009-2012. Kristen also serves as the Treasurer for the Galveston Art League, a non-profit art gallery. Kristen received her accreditation as a "Certified Senior Advisor" from the Society of Certified Senior Advisors in 2010. Kristen has two adult children, Taylor Greenwalt (Creative Services Coordinator for the Galveston Island Convention & Visitor's Bureau) and Sydney Greenwalt (co-owner of a Right at Home office in Round Rock, TX).

Kristen’s aunt, Estelle Greenwalt, was a great source of inspiration for opening the Right at Home office in Galveston. Estelle, a lifelong Galveston resident, was able to live happily at home until her death at the age of 91. Being able to provide safe, exceptional service to enable others like Estelle to stay 'right at home' as they grow older is what RAH Galveston is all about.
