Our Director of Nursing

Kathy Goans | Director of Nursing

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A NURSE?
I have been a registered nurse for 12 years. I received my bachelor’s 
degree in nursing from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

WHAT EXPERIENCE DO YOU BRING TO BRIGHTSTAR CARE?
I have worked in a variety of settings throughout my career. When I became involved with in-home services, I realized I had found my calling. I enjoy having long-term relationships with our clients and families. I believe that in-home care is an important part of the overall health team and feel privileged to be able to be involved. 
 
WHAT ASPECT OF YOUR JOB ARE YOU MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT?
I am passionate about providing the highest quality of care and providing well trained and competent field staff—ensuring that our clients get the best care possible and that our care team is well-trained and compatible with each client and family.  

I PROVIDE A HIGHER STANDARD OF CARE FOR OUR CLIENTS BY...
Understanding their life story and learning the path that brought them to BrightStar.  I feel the better we know our clients and families, the better we can provide a higher standard of care, and to match compatible caregivers.
