David has an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and a graduate business degree (M.B.A.) from the Tepper School, Carnegie Mellon University.

“I have a passion for ensuring that our seniors are cared for by the best CAREGivers in the industry and my primary focus for ensuring this outcome is recruiting, training and supporting the very best CAREGivers and office staff.”

My vision statement: "To create something powerful, ground breaking and sustainable (for the better) that will change the world for the next 50 years."

Kathy Martinez,  Manager of Service Coordination

Kathy Martinez, Manager of Service Coordination

After seven years as one of our most trusted CAREGivers, Kathy was promoted into our office September 2017 to lead our efforts in matching our CAREGivers and clients in the best possible manner.

Kathy works diligently each day to coordinate client and CAREGiver schedules, making appropriate matches based on personalities and common interests. From the time a new CAREGiver walks into orientation, Kathy works to get to know everyone and ensures their scheduling desires are met.

In Kathy's spare time she enjoys spending time with her family and traveling to new places.

My vision statement: "To achieve a better understanding, for both client and CAREGiver, of the importance of communication, respect and kindness in their lives and the lives of others."

Colby Shook,  Client Services Coordinator

Colby Shook, Manager of Client Services

After less than a year as one of our CAREGivers, we approached Colby for a position in our office. She was hired on as an Administrative Assistant in 2016. In 2018 Colby was promoted to be our Manager of Client Services. Colby has completed CNA training and utilizes those skills weekly when training our new hires and assessing our clients' needs.

Colby's responsibilities as Client Services Coordinator include quality assurance visits with clients, reviewing client concerns and updates, and providing training to our new CAREGivers and ongoing training to our current CAREGivers.

In Colby's spare time she enjoys spending time with her husband, Joe and three dogs, Maverick, Gunner and Cash. She also enjoys being outdoors, camping, shopping, and spending time with her family.

My vision statement: "To build a trusting and positive relationship with all clients and CAREGivers to assure we are providing the best possible care in the community."

Ali Goralski,  Recruitment Coordinator

Ali is a great asset to our office. She has served numerous roles in our office before becoming our Manager of Human Resources, including On-Call Coordinator, Administrative Assistant, Recruitment Coordinator and Client Care Coordinator.

A mom to three boys, Ali spends her time out of the office busy with her family, where there is never a dull moment.

My vision statement: “To commit to finding the best individuals who want to make a difference in the lives of others, and foster their compassion and skills into a meaningful career.”
