Since opening this office in 2006, Joan took on the vital position of Director of Operations. Joan oversees our wonderful staff and their day to day operations, she manages all payroll, all the billing, insurance, taxes (and all the other mundane but super important things that come with owning a Home Care business!) She is a Certified Senior Advisor, has a passion for teaching and education, loves getting to know all our CAREGivers, and still absolutely loves meeting as many clients as she can.

She has thoroughly enjoyed building relationships with Social Workers, Nurses, Rehab Specialists, Hospice companies, Home Health companies, Assisted Living Facilities, Nursing Homes, and so many others in our community that have a direct involvement with the seniors that live here.

Lindsay coordinates and maintains schedules for all our clients and their caregivers. While focusing on consistency, compatibility and continuity, Lindsay recognizes the value in the important relationships between our clients and their caregivers. Once service is established, the staffing department, which Lindsay oversees, is the communication lifeline for Home Instead Senior Care, 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. Lindsay also oversees the monitoring of our CAREGivers’ clock in and outs (so we are always on-time).​

Amy Smith-Brand & Relationship Developer

Amy’s job is not only limited to building relationships and sharing what Home Instead can do. She is always willing to help our local Doctor’s offices, ALFs, ILFs, Rehabs, Home Healths and Hospices solve any problem they may face in their day, whether it’s about our services or not. She not only brings smiles and a helpful spirit to our Referral Sources, but she is well known for her homemade treats that brighten anyone’s day!


Virginia Geiger- Billing Specialist

​Virginia has had many roles in our office: she was a CAREGiver while in school at Auburn University, she then was our Human Resources Manager, and now is our Billing Specialist. She ensures all of our CAREGiver hours are input correctly to our billing system and that our clients have the most accurate bills.​


Elizabeth Booth and Jami Wyatt- Weekend Supervisors

If you call after the office closes on Friday and before it opens on Monday, you will always get someone who answers the phone and can help assist you. We could not do without our weekend supervisors! They give our Monday through Friday office staff a much needed break, but our clients and CAREGivers still have the promise that we will always be available to them 24/7. They handle last minute staffing issues, necessary communication with CAREGivers and clients, and can get in touch with a full time staff member if the need arises.
