Owner and Managing Director
I've always described myself as a nurturer. In high school, I knew I wanted to work in a caring role as a career, and eventually I choose nursing. My first nursing job was in a senior facility on weekends, while I was in nursing school. Bessie was my first client. Bessie and I looked forward to the weekends to visit and catch up. When I was on my lunch or coffee break I found myself rushedly heading for Bessie's room. Memories of Bessie and many other seniors followed me thru the years, as I worked in the acute care, chronic care, home hospice, and home infusion. As my parents entered into their eighties, and my siblings and I became familiar with home care, I was more than interested in pursuing this as a convocation. The thought of caring for clients like Bessie again was something that was quite inspiring to me.
Right at Home is allowing me to live out that dream with the Right Care philosophy where we employ the Right People who are knowledgeable and compassionate, to provide the Right Services including what they need when they need it, with the Right Approach involving a personalized plan of care and the Right Mission of improving the quality of life for those we serve
Owner, Senior Business Director
I grew up in a large farm family where a strong work ethic was required by everyone. Family was a center-point of our life, both in terms of working together, and in supporting the layers of generations in our family tree. Although one of five boys, our mother instilled the importance of taking a personal, compassionate and relational approach with everyone that came into our lives. That heritage developed the foundation of how I’ve interfaced with others from various cultures, ages, and demographics around the world. I’ve had the opportunity to work with people of all ages in more than 20 countries. Having grown up a strong work ethic, I’m passionate about providing the best service possible for customer and clients. The lifeblood our service is based on the quality and credibility of what we do.
My role includes the Community Liaison and Marketing roles for the business, along with various back-office functions. I thoroughly enjoy connecting with others, understanding their problems and issues, and determining how I can be a supportive resource to those from all walks of life.

Coordination and Community Development
Growing up on a family farm in Michigan has instilled in me the value of hard work and motivation to care for those around me. The oldest of three girls, care taking was a natural role for me at an early age. Bringing those values to the Senior Industry has made me successful and confident in my role. My passion for home care was ignited through my own personal family experience with my grandmother. Relating to our clients and their families and having compassion for their needs is a high priority. This role is essential to me being someone that truly enjoys people. Right at Home stands by being a leader in providing quality in home care services. I am happy to be here and be able to say I help set that standard in our area of service.
