  • Dave Drauch

    As a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) and owner of BrightStar Care® of the North Hills in Pittsburgh, my goal is to help seniors and disabled adults live comfortably and safely in their homes for as long as possible. My family’s personal experience caring for my son after suffering traumatic brain injury inspired us to support other families struggling to care for their loved ones at home by opening a new BrightStar Care office in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, PA. I earned my undergraduate degree from Penn State and graduate degree from Lehigh University. When I heard about BrightStar Care, I decided it was a perfect opportunity to help families, create jobs, and give back to the community. While this is a second career for me, helping out families in need and providing quality jobs for our great staff is the most meaningful and rewarding work I’ve ever done.
