Allison Redman | Client Services Director, Cedar Rapids & Iowa City
During her junior year of college at the University of Iowa, Allison searched for the right career that would give her a feeling of purpose. She knew she wanted to work with people, but hadn’t found the right fit. She happened upon a job advertisement for BrightStar Care, applied, and became a part-time caregiver. She fell in love with the home care industry after working just a few shifts. Upon completing an internship with BrightStar Care and graduating with a degree in social work, Allison became a case manager for older adults on Medicaid for the State of Iowa. She returned to BrigthStar Care as a client services director for the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City markets. She applies her case management and caregiving experience to help our clients stay where they call home as long as possible. Allison lives in North Liberty with her husband, Tyler, and their boxer, Ellie.
