HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A NURSE?
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.

WHAT EXPERIENCE DO YOU BRING TO BRIGHTSTAR CARE?
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.

Becoming part-owner and Branch Manager was the next step in helping more people in the Twin Cities' Communities. Her favorite part of her job is getting to meet the clients in the Living Room Visits and hear their stories to see how we can make their lives more comfortable and easier.

Danelle.Harnly@brightstarcare.com
My name is Danelle Harnly.   I come to BrightStar with many years of Home Health care/Staffing experience.
I enjoy the challenge of putting together the staffing “puzzle” pieces and the challenge of making schedules that work well for clients and staff.   I want to take time to get to know the staff I am working with and developing a good working relationship and rapport with them.   I also want to get to know the customers I am talking to and finding out how I can best make their day and help alleviate any stress that they are experiencing.
I am a wife, mother of 2 (15 year old son and 8 year old daughter) and a pet parent to an 11 year old goldendoodle and 2 guinea pigs. I play piano, enjoy going to movies, restaurants, live music and just relaxing with my family when possible.  I am looking forward to getting to know everyone here and being able to make a difference and grow with this company.

Hollea.Boquist@brightstarcare.com

I am originally from northern Minnesota, a tiny town located 45 minutes, northeast of Bemidji. I saw the bright lights of the city and decided that the Minneapolis/St. Paul area was where I wanted to pursue my nursing degree. I go “up north” often to visit my family, but now consider the Twin Cities my home. I enjoy traveling, trying new restaurants, and spending time with my 2-year old niece.
