About the Owners
Egons Plavnieks was born in Washington, DC, and grew up in Garrett Park, Maryland, where he and his wife Anda still live today. His parents emigrated from Latvia in 1949 with only the bags they carried. From these humble roots, they built a future for their family through hard work, determination, and deep appreciation for the opportunities they enjoyed.
They passed these traits on to their son, who earned an MBA and worked around the world in a 29-year career with a major consumer products company. The international perspective of Egons and Anda, a native of Latvia, reinforces their belief in the principles and values of America and how important it is to preserve those.
“Our experience has given us a profound appreciation for what America is and the quality of life that America makes possible for all of us,” Egons says. “Healthcare plays an especially important role. We established BrightStar to make a contribution to the community and to the people we serve.”
The Plavnieks were drawn to the concept of BrightStar through personal experience.
“My mother was searching for support in her home and could not find a professional organization that matched the high standards of BrightStar,” Egons says. “We saw a real need in the Montgomery County area for the services and support a BrightStar franchise offers. We are truly thrilled and excited to have this opportunity to really make a difference in the lives of the people we serve.”
