Rebecca Garcia, Scheduling Coordinator
Originally from Orlando, Florida, Rebecca graduated from University High School and moved to Durango, Colorado shortly after. She had a family and raised three children in Durango. While living there, she worked as a coordinator for a car dealership called Durango Motors. Rebecca enjoyed her interactions with clients at the dealership and strived to provide a positive experience for them. This is where Rebecca excelled at customer service. Seeking a change of scenery, she moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico and found employment at an in-home care agency called A Nurse in the Family. This was the beginning of her career in healthcare. She was a CAREGiver there for four years and she absolutely loved her job. Rebecca really enjoyed making a difference in the lives of her clients. She filled the void for many families who needed help at home and/or did not have family available or close by. After four years, she was promoted to work in the office and she became the scheduling coordinator. In this role, Rebecca was responsible for matching CAREGiver with clients. According to the client’s schedule, she would assign CAREGivers to work with clients.
Rebecca has always liked big cities and she decided to take the plunge and move to Houston several years ago and she has quickly adapted to the nation’s fourth largest city. She loves Houston, is a proud Texan and loves the Houston Texans football team. Rebecca started working as a CAREGiver for Home Instead Senior Care over three years ago and again found herself doing what she loves. Enabling clients to stay at home, easing their anxiety and helping them with their daily activities fueled her fulfillment and purpose here. She again found herself making an impact in the lives of her clients and she liked the social interaction and bonds that she developed with her clients. When a scheduling coordinator position became available with Home Instead Senior Care, Rebecca did not hesitate to apply and now finds herself back in the office assisting with the daily operations. She always felt like family while working with Home Instead Senior Care and she loves her job.
As the scheduling coordinator, Rebecca is responsible for matching CAREGivers with clients based on compatibility and availability.

She enjoys meditating and tries to lead a positive life. She is a firm believer in the Golden Rule and tries to be kind to all no matter the obstacles or challenges she encounters.
