Valerie Boerner, Client Care Coordinator
In 2008 I transplanted to Arizona from Minnesota. Believe me when I say I was happy to move where the sun is always shining, and I no longer needed to shovel snow.
I met my husband after moving to Arizona; as an Arizona native he doesn’t like the cold, says he prefers 110 over 10 degrees, and he only goes home to Minnesota with me in the summer to see my kids. I am the mother of 3 grown children, grandmother of 3 and even a great grandmother of 3 adorable little ones; I admit they are my world. I also have a bonus daughter who lives in Seoul S. Korea, she was a foreign exchange student who lived with me prior to my moving to Arizona. She too is married and has 3 children. I see a pattern of threes here; I wonder what that means?
I spent many years, actually decades in the healthcare field. From being an aide and nurse in a nursing home, a volunteer EMT on a small-town ambulance service, working in medical research, documentation and billing, provider education and finally healthcare privacy and compliance I experienced a bit of everything. I decided to retire in 2021 and see what that was like. Well, for someone who likes to “stay busy” retirement didn’t last long. Deciding to do something a bit different, I became a CarePro at Home Instead. I love helping people and knew I would enjoy it. From CarePro to Client Care Coordinator I have seen both sides and know this is where I’m supposed to be.
In my free time I love to travel and see different parts of the US, there’s so much to see, do and learn, spend time with family and mostly just enjoying life and what it has to offer.
I look forward to working with everyone at Home Instead making life easier for those who need help keeping their loved ones in their homes, for they truly are a blessing to have around.
