MEET THE OWNERS
I was born in McKeesport and raised in North Huntingdon, and have been a Registered Nurse since 2004 and have spent the past 16 years dedicating myself to helping others.
Ever since she I was a child, I have been drawn to older people because of my believes that behind those aged, tired eyes there is so much knowledge and wisdom. I wholeheartedly believe there is a place in this world for seniors, yet realize that they’re often overlooked because today's society is not designed for them. I didn’t want to continue that startling trend, but instead decided to embrace seniors and learn from them, so I decided to pursue nursing as a career after a brief stint as an accountant. Though I enjoyed accounting work, I yearned for something more personally fulfilling and began nursing school in 2002.
Following graduation in 2004, I began my RN career at Jefferson Hospital and after the requisite 2-year period, began working for a home health care company. It was during this time that I realized that patients needs in the home were not being met. I saw a gap in home care after skilled services were no longer covered or needed by the patient. Ultimately, a majority of seniors desire to stay in their own home. I realized that safety is the number one obstacle that stood in the way of seniors maintaining their independence at home. My husband and I took the leap to start this business in an effort to close of the gap by providing in home caregiving services to people that may benefit from it.
I was born and raised in Castle Shannon. I had to develop a work ethic relatively early in life. My first job at the rather young age of 13 was assisting people who lived in and around my neighborhood by mowing their lawns.
After I graduated high school, I had to go to work and bring money in to help my parents. My dad was a hard working mechanic his entire life and my mother suffered from debilitation and was unable to work. I felt compelled to financially help my parents, after all they were my parents.
I secured a job at the BreadWorks Bakery on the Northside as a driver.
After my first five years , I was promoted to Assistant Supervisor in 1994. In 1995, I was promoted again to Driver Supervisor, a position I held for 20 years. My main focus and responsibilities included meeting the customer's needs, driver scheduling, and managing the day to day operations of the drivers and the department.
Throughout my employ at the BreadWorks, I served on the Customer Service Committee and the Sales & Safety Committees. I have received many service recognitions and awards.
After 25 years with the BreadWorks. I was able to retire early and took the leap with Marcia and began Freedom At Home.
