Julie Williams, Owner

Julie Williams, Owner Originally from Seattle, Julie Moved to Vancouver in 1996.  She has a background in marketing and consulting and loved helping small and medium size businesses succeed in an ever-changing business market.
Julie feels it was serendipity when the corporate offices of Home Instead Senior Care hired the firm she worked for to educate and train their franchise network.  Impressed with their commitment to seniors, caregivers, and their franchise network, she felt that this was the right company and the right time.  Her own experience of being a caregiver for her Auntie Ollie; who was much like a grandmother in her life, greatly influenced her decision.   She had always dreamed of owning her own business, but it had to be "the right" business, and Home Instead was it!
Julie has been involved in several fund raising events in Clark County and is truly impressed with the county's commitment to the community, and generosity of community leaders, and volunteers. She is proud to call Clark County her home; and the seniors in Clark County are her passion. She is committed to educating folks on the issues facing Clark County with the upcoming "Age Wave". Brainstorming with community leaders on ways we can make changes to provide better care and choices for families and their senior loved ones with regard to eldercare, and aging issues.
Home Instead Senior Care is a member of the Better Business Bureau, Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, NPDA, NFIB.

​Amy comes to Home Instead with a diverse background, and the skills needed to be great in her role as Recruitment and Engagement Coordinator.  She was the Production Lead at an international company that shipped product all over the world.  Her attention to detail and work ethic were the exact skills we needed for hiring CAREGivers and coordinating services with our CAREGivers and clients.
