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.
