Emily DeMars Kranz- Client Care Coordinator

​​Emily grew up in Hastings, NE and graduated from St. Cecilia High School. She received her degree in Journalism & Mass Communications from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln majoring in Advertising with minors in Art, English & Sociology. As Client Care Coordinator, Emily visits with families to answer their questions about what we can do for them. Emily tells us: "I love what I do- I love Home Instead. I get to meet people from all over the area and hear so many unique stories. I am genuinely curious about people, their challenges and their goals. So listening to their concerns is the best part of my job. I feel honored each time someone invites us in and asks us to help. The best part is watching their lives change as they have started connecting with one of our caregivers. It is very rewarding to be a part of the process." Emily is blessed with 3 children and likes to spend her free time with them. She also enjoys yoga, photography and doing projects around her house.
