Renee Pfister, Owner
Renee Pfister is the owner of Right at Home serving Greenville, Anderson, Pickens, and Oconee counties. Renee has been caring for loved ones since she was a teenager. At the age of 13, her grandfather suffered a stroke and moved into her family’s home so that they could care for him during his recovery. After his passing, she assisted her mother in tending to her grandmother. Caring for people has been second nature to Renee because of these experiences. This is what led her to Right at Home. “I know that owning a business requires a lot of hard work and dedication. If I put forth the time and energy required to do so, I want it to make a difference in people’s lives. I know that when I lay my head on the pillow at night, I can rest easy knowing that I did everything that I could to help others.”
Renee serves on the Oconee Memorial Hospital Foundation Board. She helps to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Association, Foothills Hospice House in Seneca and the ALS association. Renee moved to the Seneca area and helped her husband establish his endodontic practice in Clemson before starting Right at Home. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, swimming, traveling and being outdoors with her husband and children. “Time is our most valuable resource and we have to make the best of it by spending it with the people we love.”
Jennie Perkins, Operations Manager
Jennie is the Operations Manager for Right at Home. She has been with Right at Home for three years and manages out of our Clemson location. Jennie’s passion for seniors and providing exceptional home care services began when her Grandmother was diagnosed with dementia. She experienced the need of using outside resources to provide care for her grandmother in the comfort of her own home; it became a passion for her. Jennie has expanded her career knowledge by becoming a Certified Dementia Practitioner, Dementia Live Coach and a Compassionate Touch Coach.
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her husband and three children. Her children are active in baseball and basketball in the Seneca and Westminster areas. Her evenings and weekends are filled with sporting events and spending quality time with her family.
Casi Hollingsworth, Recruitment and Retention
Casi is Right at Home’s Recruitment Coordinator. She spends her day looking for passionate people to join the Right at Home Care Team. She interviews, vets, and onboards all new caregiving staff. Casi’s caring heart has always led her to positions that allow her to help others. Prior to joining Right at Home, she worked as a 911 dispatcher for the City of Greenville. Caring for her father-in-law for several months inspired her to work with seniors. Being so closely involved with his journey and experiencing the impact that senior professionals, such as hospice and home care had on his quality of life, inspired her to learn more about the needs of our seniors. Her work with Right at Home is more of a mission than a job. She is passionate about finding the right caregivers to place with our clients to improve the quality of their lives.
