We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. There are times in our lives when we need help to care for our loved ones. Family is precious, and we understand that each family wants the level of care that reflects this essential fact. It is our sincere commitment to you to provide the same care that we would want for our own family.
We have both benefited from quality care provided to our loved ones. Randy’s grandmother suffered from progressive stages of dementia before her death. This care supported her transition from her home to a senior living facility, and ultimately to a nursing home. Lisa’s family was blessed to have the support of a wonderful hospice care team and hospice house for her father before he passed away in 2017. The professional, loving care he received made it easier for her family to focus on treasuring the time they had left with him.
Director of Client Care
My formative years were shaped, in large part, by the fact that I was raised by service oriented, missionary parents. Hospitality, generosity, compassion, and service to others were all qualities that my parents taught by example.
Given my upbringing, it’s not surprising that I have always been drawn to work that involves caring for people. I have a BA in Social Studies Education and an AA in Physical Therapy. At various points in my adult life, I have worked as a CNA, PTA, and case manager for disabled adults. More recently, I created and launched an online retail business that sold get-well and sympathy blankets.
Following many years of executive experience in a variety of companies ranging from small, entrepreneurial to Fortune 500, I made the choice to work in the home care industry to find greater meaning in my work life. My most valuable experience in corporate life was the opportunity to work for a business founder, a true giant in the industry, who was ethical in all situations and had a relentless passion for providing outstanding customer service. This is the same focus and passion we have at SYNERGY HomeCare.
I probably owe my work ethic to the fact that I grew up on a dairy farm in the Midwest. Long days of hard work were the norm, as were family meals around the kitchen table. We worked hard, played hard, and were taught to help our neighbors. I now look back at those years with fondness.
We are blessed to call Tucson home. Besides its natural beauty, it might be the best city in the U.S. for the combination of biking, hiking, and golf – some of my favorite activities. We live in Oro Valley in the shadows of the Santa Catalina Mountains.
We're your locally owned home care agency serving Tucson and surrounding areas.
