Kathy manages the recruitment of CAREGivers, coordinates orientation, and handles many of the daily office functions. "The thing I love the most about my job is knowing that I am helping the seniors in my community be able to stay in their homes."

Kathy has worked in healthcare for the past 16 years in management and marketing. She has always enjoyed spending time with seniors and has personal care-giving experience by caring for her grandmother and live-in mother-in-law for years. The Home Instead CAREGiver she had for her family member also gave her the support she needed and a peace of mind that her loved one was in good hands. This is when she decided she wanted to work in home care because it makes such a difference in the lives of seniors and their families.

Kathy enjoys spending time with friends and family, gardening, crafts and reading. Her favorite sayings are "Do what you love" and "Make the most of every day."
