I bring an entrepreneurial background to the position of Director of Business Development. Whether it be a non-profit or business venture, I enjoy building and growing organizations. I specifically get excited about growing the reach of Home Instead Senior Care, because as a former Nursing Assistant and EMT, I understand the difference our CAREGivers are making. My family has experienced first-hand how valuable in-home care is for our 101-year-old grandmother in preventing falls and socializing with her during her long days.
I have previously worked in grassroots organizing, publishing sales and have been involved in several tech start-ups as founder and co-founder. I graduated from Olivet Nazarene University with a degree in Religion and later earned a law degree from Regent University. I essentially grew up in a cornfield in NW Indiana and I now live in Warrenton with my wife of 15 years and our 3 children. I like IU Basketball, fishing, camping and watching our kids play their sports. And, I promise, I'm not that crazy-sports dad.

Anne started her life journey in caregiving at a very young age. Her mother was a geriatric nurse in a nursing home and released her children onto the floor at the tender age of 4 with instructions to "make someone's life better today." Taking that to heart, all her life Anne has lived in the service of others. In the beginning this meant Anne pursued a career in Special Education and was a teacher for 3 years before moving to Hawaii where her teaching license did not transfer. Knowing that Autism and Alzheimer's were similar she took a job in an Alzheimer's ward, and caring for the elderly accidentally became her passion. After she became a CNA, Anne became a Patient Care Technician and passed the National Board for Phlebotomy.
Having trained and worked with CNA's throughout her career in a variety of medical facilities and home care agencies, Anne brings a unique perspective to the hiring team. She describes herself as having an "awkward and friendly energy". She is full of life!
Anne also works on an On-Call basis with the Client Care Team; filling in on weekend shifts for other Caregivers who called out for emergency reasons. It blesses her greatly to still provide personal care to those who need it the most.
"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.
