  • Tracy Overla

    Tracy was drawn to the home care industry by seeing a need in people close to him and how hard it was to find quality care. He found by having loved ones in a situation needing home care services, how important it is to be able to trust and depend on a company with great credentials and a broad spectrum of care. He realized BrightStar Care fit that mold and was drawn to the franchise and their high standards. Prior to becoming the owner of BrightStar Care of East Lake County and West Lake County, Tracy worked for 17 years as a manager at a prominent car dealership in Merrillville, Indiana. The gratification of helping people while providing excellent customer service has been the most rewarding work experience that Tracy has encountered in his career. It is his pleasure to serve Lake County, Indiana residents and families as he would want his own family to be treated.
