  • Caitlyn Harding

    Director of Nursing

    I have been with Brightstar Care since March 2023. I have 7 years of nursing experience with the last 3 years being in Home Health. My passion is caring for patients in their home and helping them enjoy their life on their terms. I enjoy engaging with patients and helping support the nursing community. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, movie nights with my son and going on adventures in the community.

  • Fiona Connolly

    Client Care Manager
    I joined BrightStar Care in November 2022 and I have over 20 years of experience in customer service management. I started my background in Healthcare working for a Nationwide Healthcare Staffing Agency providing Radiological Services to Doctor’s Offices and Hospitals. From there I took my passion for helping people into a skilled nursing facility as the Rehab Office Coordinator. I spend my free time managing my family business and spending as much time with my kids and animals as possible. 
  • Nicole Presley

    Operations Manager
    I have been a part of the BrightStar Care team since August 2022 and have worked in the home health field for more than 15 years. Much of my experience is within the geriatric and long-term care specialty. I thoroughly enjoy assisting our clients and caregivers, making sure the highest quality of care is of the upmost priority. I enjoy leading and watching our employees grow in their roles. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading different types of books, and helping in our community.
  • Ed Fichtel

    After 30 years working in various business and operational roles at several Fortune 500 companies, I decided to pursue a career in home health care.  As my parents faced the challenges of growing health concerns and how to address their own care needs, I realized this was an area where I felt a strong desire to dedicate this next phase of my life.  My wife Karen and I decided on BrightStar Care when we came to understand how well matched our values were and how BrightStar Care could allow us to build a great home health company in service to our community. I also enjoy serving others as a volunteer in various Christian based organizations. I feel blessed to provide this service to help others in need.
  • Karen Fichtel

    With over 30 years in the dental field, I come to BrightStar Care with a goal of helping others by leveraging my exceptional people skills.  One of my greatest takeaways from my Dental Hygiene experience is the ability to put others at ease when facing a difficult situation.  Over the years, I have volunteered for hospice, Special Olympics, and my church.  I have also become a strong advocate for both human and animal rights.  Working at BrightStar Care is an extension of my caring nature and passion for helping others
