Kat Tweed, Scheduler

Kat is our Primary scheduler for the Beaver Dam office.

Kat has almost 15 years of experience working with seniors. She started off as a caregiver for her parents immediately after graduating from UW- La Crosse with a B.S in Philosophy and English. Together they navigated through medication issues, health concerns and management of Alzheimer's. When the level of care became too great the family brought in an agency like Home Instead to help. That was when Kat moved to caregiving as a profession. She started out as a CAREgiver in a franchise in Illinois. She and her husband moved to Wisconsin in 2014 and she joined the Beaver Dam office as a CAREgiver for 4 years before accepting a position to hone her scheduling skills. She is now back "Home" again and ready and willing to help out wherever needed.

Kat ironically spends a lot of quality time with her 2 cats and her husband, Jose. They dabble in culinary arts with a focus on locally produced goods and love spending time in the community experiencing all the region has to offer.
