MaryAnn - Recruitment Coordinator

MaryAnn - Recruitment Coordinator

I worked in New York in advertising for Newsday for 32 years and took care of my Mom and my Mother-in-Law.  I worked as a Caregiver for 4 years and now work in the office. This is an amazing Company to work for. The amount of care that Home Instead has for Clients and Caregivers goes above and beyond. I have so much respect for everyone that is part of this organization. Some of my responsibilities include opening the office and getting it ready for the day, incoming calls, review Caregiver inquiries, schedule applicant interviews,  handle Caregiver expirations and reminders,  distribute mail, plus much more. When not on the job, I enjoy traveling with my husband and being with my family.​
