Meet Tony, Owner of Right at Home Southeast South Dakota
My name is Kayla McInerney and I am the Chief Operating Officer for Right at Home in Sioux Falls and Rapid City. I graduated from SDSU with a degree as a Registered Nurse. I spent most of my nursing career on the Mother-Baby unit in Boise, ID and most recently on the Labor and Delivery unit at Avera McKennan. I have also been a Nursing Supervisor at Avera Behavioral Health where I assumed many HR related duties. Every job I have had has encompassed caring for people in some capacity and this career fits perfectly into that passion. My husband Sam and I live in Sioux Falls with our 3 children, Harper, Finn and Rae and our fur baby Murphy. In our spare time my family enjoys doing anything the outdoors has to offer including golfing, snowboarding/skiing, hiking, biking, camping and being on the lake.
Director of Nursing
My name is Roberta Hindberg and I am a Registered Nurse and am the Director of Nursing for Right at Home. I graduated from USD with my associate degree in Nursing and later obtained my bachelor’s degree from Grand Canyon University. I have been an RN for 20+ years with most of my career working with the geriatric population whether it was in a skilled nursing facility, assisted living facility, nursing student clinical instructor in long term care, or home health. Helping care for people and/or families that have loved ones which have been diagnosed with Dementia is my passion. Right at Home is a perfect fit for my busy family to provide a great work life balance. I have 3 children, Kimberlee, Hayden, and Emmalee and of course my cat Charlee. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, watching movies and TV, playing darts and board games, and doing crafts.
