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 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.

WHAT ASPECT OF YOUR JOB ARE YOU MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT?
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 PROVIDE A HIGHER STANDARD OF CARE FOR OUR CLIENTS BY...
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.

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.

Get to know Jennifer!

I moved to Minnesota from Oklahoma during the Summer of 2019 in search of better job and school opportunities for my family and I. Previously, I lived in Oklahoma for 8 years after being born and raised in Arizona originally. Since I was a little girl I wanted to be in the medical field and I believe I have found my calling as a nurse. Coming to BrightStar has allowed me the privilege of being better able to provide quality and individualized care to each client. I believe this is because of the strong and innovative foundation and management that BrightStar has. Caring for each person as if they are family is something I have worked hard to do since the beginning of my nursing career and BrightStar has shown me a team who has the same beliefs I do when it comes to quality care.  I come to BrightStar with 4 previous years of home health experience. Caring for someone in their own home is an absolute privilege in my eyes. BrightStar makes it easier to provide the quality of care that people deserve, by giving their team the support and tools they need to go above and beyond for their clients in every way possible.  I look forward to continuing my career with BrightStar and being able to serve and care for people in a wholesome and individualized way that allows them to stay in their home and be most comfortable.

Get to know Carrie!
I am the mother of four wonderful boys and have 6 amazing grandchildren. I enjoy watching MN sports and spending time with my family. In my free time I'm either in the gym or with my grandchildren. My love of nursing came from my grandmother who was also a nurse. I knew from a young age that I would be a nurse like she was. I have been working in healthcare services for over 25 years. I started as a CNA when I was 19 and worked in various settings, including long term care facilities, hospitals, and home care. After working as a CNA for many years, I chose to further my knowledge and skills by returning to school. I graduated from MSCTC Detroit Lakes, MN with as a LPN. As an LPN, I have worked in long term care and with critical care pediatrics on ventilators, tracheotomies, feeding tubes, and IV medication in the home care setting. I have worked in home care for the past 12 years and have found that is my true passion. I am an honest, dependable, loyal, loving, caring, and hard working professional. I treat all clients with the utmost care and respect. This coming Spring, I plan to further my nursing career by returning to school to achieve my RN while continuing to work full-time with Brightstar.
