Meet our Care Consultant: Cheri O'Connor
Helping families navigate their journey: Cheri O’Connor has spent more than 28 years working in the medical and health industry in many capacities. Her merits include: CMA in Ophthalmology, CNA, Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor, Ward Clerk, Sales and Marketing, Educational Presentations. Taking time from the health industry she worked in the travel industry as a Travel Consultant, leading her into owning her own international travel tour business. She would develop tours, market them, and be the attending guide on the tour. This leaves postings in her passport of 29 countries. Having a great tour guide in Israel, she was invited to live with his wife and family for some time. It was an awesome experience living there as one of them as opposed to being a tourist. We still remain family to this day. Cheri's career journey always brought her back to the health industry. She has worked in clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, in home care, private care, alcohol and drug treatment center, and educational consulting. Cheri's passion is to be able to help, consult, educate, and bring many levels of care and knowledge to all who may be of need. Also, to educate the In-Home Care Givers on how to manage their lives as well as be a good care giver to their loved ones without having guilt feelings. International travel is in her blood and heart and always will remain.Cheri is a mother of a married daughter and one granddaughter who also is an international traveler, of which she is proud of. Being invited to join the BrightStar Care Team St. Croix is letting me continue my journey of “Helping Others”.
