Toccara Black | Customer Care Manager
Toccara started with BrightStar Care in October 2014 as a Certified Nursing Assistant. She has been a CNA for 11 years! While she is passionate about providing direct care, Toccara was thrilled when she was offered the Administrative Assistant position in 2015. She really enjoyed the new challenge of learning the ins and outs of home care from the office setting. From managing client charts to assisting applicants and new hires, Toccara grew further professionally and advanced to the Customer Care Position in August 2018. The most rewarding part of her job is in knowing that she can help our clients and their family members by staffing them with compatible caregivers. Toccara loves receiving feedback from our clients and when she hears that they really enjoy their caregiver, she says, "that's just wonderful."
Toccara is from Panama City, Florida and loves spending time with her family and friends in her free time. She enjoys rollerskating, watching a good movie, and she loves listening to music. Not a day goes by that you don't hear her say "Alexa, play some good music" in the office!
