Melissa Herrygers, Director of Operations
Coordinating the thousands of details involved in managing the care plans for hundreds of clients, family members, and caregivers is the central role of our Director of Operations, Melissa Herrygers.
An Ohio native and Florida resident since 1987, Melissa has been in healthcare for eleven years, eight as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), and seven as a trusted colleague at Right at Home. As a dedicated advocate for quality care, Melissa’s top priority is ensuring that all clients have the best possible experience with Right at Home. Her years of experience in Client Care Coordination and Client Relations, where strong communication skills are essential, has prepared her well to liaise with families and caregivers on matters relating to scheduling and quality assurance programming.
When she is not juggling client care needs and caregiver scheduling, Melissa enjoys spending time “glamping” with family and friends.
Jennifer Steinman, Director of Nursing
A native of Massachusetts, Jennifer began her career as a personal caregiver and later served at Berkshire Medical Center for more than 20 years in various capacities including oncology nurse, infusion nurse, home health nurse, quality performance improvement specialist, nurse case manager, orthopedic service line manager and most recently chronic care manager for primary care.
Today, as our Director of Nursing, Jennifer serves as the chief clinical officer at Right at Home, assessing and closing the gap between our clients’ care needs and their desire to age gracefully and safely in the comfort of their homes. She works diligently and skillfully at leading and supervising our agency’s growing staff of nurses and caregivers, and developing, implementing, and managing new policies and procedures that improve the efficiency and effectiveness of care delivery. Facilitating clinical care, communication and coordination among and between caregivers, clients, families and other medical professionals is central to Jennifer’s leadership role at Right at Home.
As a new resident to Florida, Jennifer is enjoying the calm and beauty of our pristine gulf beaches, the warm breeze, and passing the time in the company of her two dogs, family and friends.
