"I am continually struck by the professionalism, high level of caring and exemplary caregivers that I have met from Home Instead. My mom couldn't live without them, and neither could I.
Amanda initially joined our team as a CAREGiver. Her capacity to relate to the clients, families and other caregivers prompted us to invite her to join the office team as our Client Care Coordinator.
Amanda was a full-time caregiver for her grandmother. It was in that role where she developed a high level of empathy for the families of aging adults. Amanda describes herself as a natural born caregiver. Although her grandmother lost her battle to cancer in 2012, she continues to be an inspiration to Amanda!
Having worked in facilities as a CNA, Amanda is able to tap into that strong skill set to provide mentoring and coaching to our CAREGivers. She looks forward to meeting new families and doing her part to ensure that the goals of remaining home as longs as possible are achieved.
Amanda has four children who are quite active in school sports and activities. When they are not on a ballfield, they love to be outdoors enjoying camping, hiking or traveling.
