  • Tony Moore

    Account Manager
    I came to BrightStar Care in March 2020 with over 12 years experience working in healthcare settings. Before Brightstar, I had been a private caregiver and worked in Cardiac & ER as a CNA. My most recent position before joining BrightStar was as the GM of Butcher & Barrel Gastropub in Downtown Racine. The most rewarding aspect of my career was the change in lifestyle and the ability to help others. I truly enjoy helping our Staffing department employees to enjoy every day at their jobs.

  • Lori Tebrinke

    Director of Nursing
    Before coming to Bright Star, I was a night RN at UW Hospital and Clinics on a general internal medicine unit that specialized in Geriatrics and Special Pathogens. I am excited to bring my evidence-based, best practice nursing skills, experiences and training into the private setting. My Bachelor’s degree in Nursing is from UW Madison; additionally I have a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Iowa State University in Communication Disorders with a minor in Psychology. Working here at Bright Star as an RN Case Manager, I feel I have truly come full circle by being able to provide this level of care to my clients in their own home!

  • Laken Wehrmann

    Assistant Director of Nursing
    I was working at a facility in the Janesville area when I first heard of BrightStar, there was a nurse on my floor that was from  BrightStar Staffing. The nurse really enjoyed her career with BrightStar. Then BrightStar Homecare was looking for a new RN Case Manager and I applied and got the job! I have worked in many different healthcare settings, mostly assisted livings, and memory care units. I've enjoyed coordinating 1-on-1 individualized care for my clients as an RN Case Manager and look forward to having a larger impact on clinical quality of our organization in this new role.

  • Hattie Truss

    Business Office Manager
    I joined the team at BrightStar Care in 2016 after working in pharmacy and hospital settings. Though my current role with BrightStar Care is more on the administrative side of our business, I enjoyed working with direct care staff and our clients for nearly four years as a Customer Care Manager. I was drawn to BrightStar Care because of the care and compassion shown to both our employees and clients, and I continue to be inspired to live those values in my daily work. Outside of work, I love to travel and spend time in nature.

  • Erin Peters

    Talent Acquisition Director
    I recently returned to BrightStar Care after working here as a Recruiter from 2007-2015. I truly found my passion for serving others after realizing the impact we made by providing quality job opportunities for our CNA, nurses, and medical support staff. I earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay in Business Administration and have spent the last 16 years working in Human Resources, with a focus in talent management and employee relations. My goal is to ensure that our hiring and onboarding provides the ultimate experience for our caregiving and nursing staff and that we make lasting impressions on those who work for BrightStar Care for years to come.

    Talent Acquisition Specialist
    I choose Brightstar as I have previously worked as a CNA and really enjoyed working with patients. I got my bachelors degree from UW-Platteville.  Before Brightstar I was a HR intern at Deal health plan. After receiving my degree in business with an emphasis in HR Management I wanted to find a job where I could incorporate my education with my background in healthcare. I enjoy getting to interact with all the different caregivers daily. I enjoy hearing how passionate the caregivers are and hearing about how they find so much fulfillment working with our clients.
