George Sanchez | Owner
George and his wife Kimberly acquired BrightStar of Austin in 2013. They chose BrightStar out of a deep love for caregiving within their own family. Kimberly’s mom had a spinal cord injury at age 13 and has lived mostly independently for the last 50 years. With advancing age and increasing disabilities, she has needed more hands-on care. Kimberly’s grandfather, who lived to 100 years of age, required 24/7 care for the last few years of his long life. The Sanchezes understand the inestimable value of quality and trustworthy caregivers. George and Kimberly have been married for 20 years and have two teenage children. George has over 20 years experience growing and running companies.
