About Us
Meet Our Home Care Team
Owners, Brad and Samantha

Brad & Samantha Wolfe - Owners

After starting our family and living in the Greater Columbia, SC area for over 10 years, we fell in love with Home Instead during our time working with Home Instead in Michigan. After spending 3 years there, it was our desire to return home and invest in this community that we care so much about. With Samantha’s background as a RN and Brad’s experience in the industry, this was a perfect fit to love and serve this area. The relationships with our clients, their families, and our amazing CAREGivers is what we enjoy so much about Home Instead. We’re striving to enhance the lives of seniors and their loved ones in the Greater Columbia area.

Matt & Alyssa Cogdill - Owners

Prior to joining Home Instead, I served as a Vice President with Lexington Medical Center in Lexington, South Carolina. My wife, Alyssa, currently works as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner with Prisma Health in Columbia. We were both raised in Lexington and feel called to serve the people of the Midlands. After many years working in hospital settings, we both felt the need to work with seniors and loved ones in a way that honors not just our clients, their families, but also our amazing CAREGivers.

Sarah Taylor - Human Resources Manager

I am a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana who fell in love with the Columbia area when my family moved here in 2019. After joining Home Instead, I realized what an honor and opportunity I had to serve the aging adults in this community. As a child and teenager, I gravitated each Sunday at church to the elderly for a hug, a smile, and to find out how their week had gone. Joining the Home Instead Team felt like a perfect fit for me. In my free time I love to cook a good Gumbo or Jambalaya and spend time with my husband and children on the Lake.

Amberle Nickas - Human Resources Coordinator

As the HR Coordinator here at Home Instead I recruit, interview, and hire the CAREGivers who work for us. I’m originally from Pennsylvania but have lived here in South Carolina for the past 3 years. During the summers in college, I worked at a camp for adults and kids with varying disabilities and I loved caring for the people I met there. So, after college I became a certified nursing assistant and worked in a skilled nursing facility for almost 2 years before going back to school. I love working on finding the best CAREGivers for our clients! My passions include science and history and I love reading, listening to podcasts, and making art.
