Owners, David and Louise Evans

David and Louise Evans

David and Louise Evans became the proud owners of BrightStar Care of Marietta in February 2011. Prior to BrightStar, David worked in the insurance industry, and Louise worked as a teacher.  They are passionate about the Home Care business and work conscientiously to ensure that everyone who comes into contact with BrightStar of Marietta experiences a first class level of care.  This level of care is carried out whether it is through a staffing contract, a skilled nursing assignment, or through having a BrightStar caregiver in their home to help with a loved one. 

David fills an operational role at BrightStar, building relationships in the community and keeping us compliant with all of our licensing requirements.  Louise uses her skills to introduce families into the BrightStar fold by marketing new products and orientating new staff members. David and Louise are from the United Kingdom, although they have been enjoying Georgia for more than ten years.  When they are not occupied with BrightStar business, they spend their time keeping up with their children, working in the yard, and reading.

Lori Burton, Branch Manager

Lori Burton
Branch Manager

Lori has been with us since the owners took over the Marietta territory.  As the branch manager, she is primarily responsible for the payroll and billing.  These tasks, however, involve her with our master schedule, which in turn links her to our customers and our caregivers.  She is quick to answer the phone and always offers excellent customer service with a smile. 

She is a native Georgian and is willing to share her local knowledge of resources to those who need help.  She lives with her husband and in-laws in Dallas.  Her spare time is occupied with her grandchildren.

Jennifer Chabeck, Case Manager

Jennifer Chabek
Skilled Case Manager 

Jennifer has been with BrightStar since September 2011. She originally worked in the field but then joined the office to manage the schedule and head our recruiting drive. She now visits clients to make sure they received the highest standard of care. Jen also manages the "Humana At Home" program. She recruits nurses from all over Georgia to work as our Care Managers on the Humana program. These managers visit clients in their homes to offer advice that helps them to better manage their chronic medical conditions. This, in turn, reduces the amount of hospitalizations and improves their quality of life. Her experiences in the field as a nurse have given her a unique perspective of what skills our field staff need and how best to serve our clients . It must be very reassuring to all our field workers to know that they can reach out to Jen who will be there to offer advice
and support.

In her spare time Jen enjoys spending time with her family, sewing, crocheting, and researching her ancestry.
