Brea Yapuncich - Office Manager
"Hello, all. I am a Washingtonian born and raised in Spokane, WA. I graduated from a local state university with a B.S. in Geology (rocks, rock!). During the time spent on my degree, I was a caregiver for a state-run facility for developmentally disabled adults. After graduation, my boyfriend, roommate, and I packed up our belongings and moved to the Denver area. Since then we added one to our clan: a young lab named Iggy, short for Icarus. I’m very excited to be here at SYNERGY HomeCare and look forward to continuing work with our caregivers and clients."

Greetings! I was born and raised in Southern California and have been living in Colorado for ten years now. For the past five years, I have dedicated myself to helping families receive the best care and caregivers for their loved one. When not at work I enjoy spending time with my family, significant other and my dog. I am a huge music and food lover and I like to attend concerts and discover some of the best eateries in Colorado. I am grateful to be a part of the SYNERGY HomeCare team and look forward to meeting and working with our clients and caregivers.
Alice Kershaw - Client Advocate
Hi, my name is Alice Kershaw and I am the newest member of the Denver West SYNERGY HomeCare team. I am honored to be one of your first points of contact and look forward to the opportunity to share all of the wonderful services that SYNERGY HomeCare of West Denver offers. As your Community Liaison, you will see me out in the community performing quality visits, meeting and consulting with families and working to create plans tailored to the specific needs of each family. By taking a consultative approach to understanding each family’s goals and objectives, I aim to speak on your behalf and help you feel more secure and confident in your care choices.
When I am not out mingling with the community, you can find me spending time with my husband and 2 elementary-aged kids. I love hiking, gardening, and trying new restaurants. I am passionate about animals and typically have 1-2 foster dogs rehabilitating at the Kershaw house at any given time. I believe that my friends and family would say that I am a very compassionate person and I am so excited to join a team with the same values. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve you and your family!
Lisa Sinnock - Client Care
Hi Everyone! My name is Lisa Sinnock and I am the Client Care team member in the office. I assist with scheduling, which appeals to my love of order and my penchant for completing daily tasks and solving puzzles. I came to caregiving after looking after my mother through her Alzheimer’s. Taking care of the needs of others comes to me naturally. I am the mother of seven children, an author, and a life coach in the making. My free time is spent with my children and my boyfriend, dancing, hiking, and generally moving at the speed of a stampeding buffalo. I believe that life is what you make of it and that we must learn new things daily. Working for Synergy has been a tremendous blessing to me, and I am thankful to be part of a cohesive, supportive team of wonderful people.
