Our St. Paul Care Team

Snr. Director of Nursing


Travis Moore DPN, 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 Doctorate in Nursing Practice from the University of Minnesota, where I specialized in Health Innovation and Leadership. I also have a certificate in Public Health Nursing. 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.

One of my favorite sayings is “People may forget what you said, and they may forget what you did, but they’ll never forget how you made them feel.” I love being able to help people feel comfortable and empower them to live the healthiest and happiest life possible.

I help create an organization and system that is flexible enough to not only accommodate each client’s unique needs, but also enhance their confidence and independence. Simply put, my job is to remove barriers, and work to create a health care experience with you, not for you.

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.

Assistant Director of Nursing

Debra Hawkins, ADN,RN
Assistant Director of Nursing
Maplewood: O: +1(651) 770-8427 | F: +1(651) 770 4845

Get to know Debra!
I started my healthcare career as a nursing assistant working in long term and memory care units, then eventually transferred to a cardiac unit at St. John’s hospital in the late 90s. I worked at St John’s for the next 7 years while I completed my nursing degree. Before coming to BrightStar, I was the Director of Nursing for a large health and human services provider overseeing 53 group homes in the Twin Cities and surrounding area. While I gained a great deal of leadership and nursing experience during my three years tenure there, I realized I was really missing the direct relationships with the individuals I was serving, which is exactly what led me to Brightstar Care.  

I feel my success has been measured by my accomplishments in family, career and continued learning. Once I graduated from nursing school, I took some time off to care for my Mother and Father, which is one of the main reasons why home health care has always been very close to my heart.  I am grateful to have had the opportunity to spend quality time with my parents throughout their lives and I am most passionate about helping individuals maintain their health in the comfort of their home while supporting the quality of life they choose to live.  Family is very important to me and by carefully choosing Brightstar Care, I am excited to advance my knowledge in home health. I can say without reason, I will treat everyone with the same respect and dignity I give my own family.
