Crystal Bruner, General Manager

I am the new General Manager for Home Instead. I have been a licensed social worker in Arkansas for over 20 years and have experience working with all age groups. However, I enjoy working with the older population the most.

I was born and raised in Paragould, AR where most of my family still live. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Nick, for 16 years. We have two children, a 20 year old daughter and a 13 year old son. In my spare time (haha who has spare time) I enjoy reading and swimming. I have a very large family that is close knit and look out for one another. I truly enjoy spending time with them, especially when we go on our “girl trips”.

Makayla McCrackin, Recruitment and Retention Coordinator

Hello, my name is Makayla McCrackin. I am the Recruitment and Retention Coordinator at Home Instead. I help with the hiring process from performing interviews to teaching training class, but I also oversee the educational monthly in-services for our caregivers and keep caregiver files up to date on background checks and required information. I really find joy in helping our clients get the services and help that they need. I thoroughly enjoy the team we have here at Home Instead in the office and with our caregivers and clients. I have been with Home Instead for 2 years now, and have learned a lot, and have really connected with our clients and caregivers.

Just a few things to get to know me. I have lived in Jonesboro my whole life, I am very involved in my church, and enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and puppy dog. I have a Masters degree in Social Work, and look forward to applying information I have learned to working with our clients as well.
