Kimberly DeMarcus, RN
Providing RN oversight on every case from day one
How long have you been a nurse? I started working in the healthcare field 15 years ago first as a CNA and then an RN.
What experience do you bring to BrightStar Care? I have 10 years of experience working as an RN in the Director of Nursing role. My experience includes working in a variety of settings such as skilled, long term, psych/dementia with behaviors and assisted living. I worked as a CNA for 5 years before becoming a nurse. Over the years my formal training focused on leadership skills and dementia care. Prior to my nursing career, I owned and operated a licensed daycare for 14 years.
What aspects of your job are you most passionate about? I am most passionate about leading a team that provides exceptional care to our clients. I love to see bonds form between team members and clients. It is rewarding to see team members and clients see each other as family and not just a job.
I provide a higher standard of care for our BrightStar Care clients by...investing in team members by giving extensive and continual training so that they are in a position to provide the best care possible to our clients. Exceptional, holistic care is the expected standard and nothing less will be accepted of myself or BrightStar Care team members.
