Shannon 2022 1

Shannon Chan, Owner & President

"Changing the face of aging, one client at a time in our community." Shannon moved to Bay Area shortly after enduring way too much snow and completing two master degrees in Applied Economics and Education in Buffalo, New York. It took almost a decade in banking to prepare her for her true calling, Senior Care. Her mother, a registered nurse who took care of patients all her life was the real inspiration for Shannon to pursue her dream in senior care. In her free time, Shannon enjoys swimming, a sunny day on the beach with her family and community works at Fremont Rotary Club.

Rachel Celeste 2024 final

Rachel Celeste, Recruitment & Engagement Coordinator

I am a proud wife and mother to 5 beautiful children. I was born and raised in the Bay Area and have lived here my whole life. I come from a background in the airlines, working as a departure coordinator. I wanted to take a break from the demanding and fast paced environment of the airport, to be closer to home and have more family time.

I have been a caregiver my whole life, starting at a very young age, with two older brothers who are both on the autism spectrum. As well as my maternal grandmother, who suffered two strokes and is diagnosed with dementia and aphasia. During my time with Home Instead, I have enjoyed meeting with our senior community, as each visit feels like I am at home with my grandmother again.

I am a huge cat person, with seven cats at home. I'm also a big anime/manga and video game fan. During my free time, I enjoy weight training and going to the gym with my husband, spending time with my children, biking, traveling, cooking, and visiting museums.
