Our South Minneapolis Metro / Burnsville Care Team


Snr. Director of Nursing


Travis Moore BSN, RN, PHN
Senior Director of Nursing
Direct Line: 651-300-6443

My healthcare career began as an EMT when I was 16 and later as a paramedic after  graduating from high school. I became a Registered Nurse in 2010 and since then, have worked in the Emergency Department, ICU and Primary Care, while maintaining a variety of leadership roles throughout my journey.

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing as well as a certificate in Public Health Nursing. Currently, I am completing a Doctorate in Nursing Practice, studying Health Innovation and Leadership at the University of Minnesota. While my formal education has helped me to build a solid foundation of clinical practice, my graduate studies have been focused on stretching that working practical knowledge further through the design of new systems and ways of thinking. These systems account for the social and system disparities that limit the our ability to live healthy lives. I believe this presents myself and the BrightStar Care team a huge opportunity to reinvent healthcare norms for all walks of life.

Case Manager
Registered Nurse

Brandi Sanders - RN
BrightStar Care® of South Metro and Maplewood
O: +1(952) 300-3698 | F: +1(952) 681 7339

Hi!  I am Brandi Sanders, new case manager RN with Brightstar!  I have a diverse background in nursing and always find the most satisfaction I working with people and their families in their homes to maintain that comfort and safety of home and family when possible.  Science proves people heal best when surrounded by familiarity and comfort, so I really enjoy getting to know families and finding creative and safe ways to provide care that will keep people in their homes.
I am a midlife career changer, I was an electrical engineer prior to nursing but found that traveling full time and being away from home was hard with a family.  So, I quit my job and pursued a Nursing degree because I feel that nurses are the human part of health care and have a can do attitude when it comes to getting things done.  Brightstar also has this attitude and really works as a team to find the resources and best fit for our clients.
