Mechelle Minter, Owner and President

Mechelle Minter, Owner and President

Mechelle has been the the President and Owner of the Houston Home Instead office for 9 years, serving clients in central Houston with the utmost quality and care. Mechelle has had a passion for seniors and for helping others since she was a young girl and it is that passion that led her to Home Instead. Mechelle took a leave of absence early in her career to personally help care for her great-grandmother during the last few months of her beautiful 92 years of life and recalls that time as one of the most rewarding experiences of her life! "I count it an absolute blessing and privilege for our Company to have the opportunity to provide service to our clients." It is in this spirit that Mechelle seeks to nourish relationships between clients and CAREGivers, as well as between CAREGivers and our office staff.

It is Mechelle's responsibility to ensure that the company maintains and follows its primary mission which is to provide quality, affordable non-medical in-home care to seniors which allows them to remain living independently in their own homes for a longer period of time. Mechelle is dedicated to ensuring the highest standards of care for all clients and ensuring that guidelines and regulations of the Home & Community Support Services License issued by the Texas Department of Aging & Disability Services are followed.

Mechelle is a lifelong Texan and graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in 1987 with a degree in Accounting. She moved to Houston in January 1988 and started her career in the energy sector with Tenneco Energy. She earned her Certified Public Accountant's license and later joined PricewaterhouseCoopers where she served clients in numerous industries. Mechelle formed Minter Consulting in 2002 and served clients in that capacity until becoming a Home Instead franchise owner in 2013.

Mechelle enjoys travelling and lives a blessed, busy, active life with her husband, David, and two sons, Cayman and Laysan.
