Gianna has always had a passion for helping people. Part of this passion stemmed from caring for her father during his two-year battle with a rare form of pancreatic cancer. Gianna's father passed away in April of 2000 but the caregiving experience left an indelible impression on Gianna's heart. It was during this time that she felt her bond with her father strengthen and truly learned what the gift of caregiving provides. Gianna stresses outstanding customer service, having the industry's best training and not having a CAREGiver do anything that she would not do herself. Gianna is the past President and current board member of the Texas HCAOA (Home Care Association of America) and is the former Secretary of ESP (Elder Service Providers of Denton County). Gianna is also a Certified Senior Advisor and is currently completing her Masters in Health Leadership. Gianna and her husband Phil, a Navy Wartime Veteran and local Sign Company owner, have three children: Zachary, Ethan, and Caroline. Phil and Gianna count themselves as blessed to have a child with special needs.
