John Ransom, Owner/President – Hi, I’m John Ransom – Owner and Operator of BrightStar Care of W. Montgomery Co.. I’d worked for over 20 years in management and customer relations for a national retail pharmacy when a jarring personal experience illustrated a new path for me. My step mother needed care and I struggled to find a quality provider. After pressing on through multiple hurdles to get her the care she deserved, I unpacked my experience and became determined to help others bridge the gap in finding quality care for their loved ones. My wife and I are honored to have established an agency that truly cares. Our Care Team looks forward to providing you with the best possible service.
Melissa Sadler, BSN, RN, Co-Owner – Hi, I’m Melissa – Co-Owner of BrightStar Care of W. Montgomery Co.. I’m a Registered Nurse with several years leadership experience in the health insurance arena but my passion is for helping people to remain safe in their homes. I deeply respect our community members and feel empowered as a healthcare professional to help them maintain their dignity and independence. I work closely with the onboarding and development of our Care Team to help deliver the best in care. I’m proud to partner with my husband to offer compassionate high-quality care to your loved one.
Paula Pezzano, RN, BSN, RN Supervisor – Hi, I'm Paula. I have over 30 years nursing experience including certifications in Medical Surgical Nursing, Case Management, Chronic Care Management; experience in Outpatient Surgery Care, Oncology and Supervision of Homecare Nurses and Therapists. I'm most passionate about teaching. When I enter a home I am anxious to explore ways our clients can maximize their independence, age in place and ease the burden of the primary care givers and help clients and families enjoy life within their physical or mental limitations.
Three unique strengths I bring to BrightStar are perseverance, communication, and respect. My perseverance has allowed me to be a stronger person, my communication allows for me to see through the lens of others to diplomatically arrive at a mutually agreeable compromise, and my penchant for respecting others has enabled me to learn from other's varied experiences to forge team inspired patient care - which maximizes benefits for the patient.
I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason. I married and had three children who were school aged when I pursued my Bachelor's degree in nursing. I'm convinced that having obtained my goal of becoming a nurse after I had a family to care for gave me a level of confidence, patience, and empathy I would not have had at an earlier stage of my life.
Melody Pereira, Staffing Coordinator– Hi, I'm Melody. I began working in the health care field 10 years ago. I started off working with kids with disabilities then worked as a patient advocate at a reputable workers' compensation industry provider. Afterwards, I graduated from an accredited nursing school in North Carolina with 120 clinical hours. With my extensive experience I am able to locate like-minded, compassionate Caregivers to help find the "perfect fit" for our clients and their families.
Three unique strengths I bring to BrightStar are patience, compassion, and optimism. I'm naturally a patient person, and when it comes to supporting Caregivers and clients, I always put myself in their position and treat them the way I would want to be treated. Whether it's a simple task or a very complex issue, my goal is to provide attentive service so the individual or family feels cared for and appreciated.
I have always taken the "giver" in "caregiver" very seriously and have therefore devoted myself to the selfless care of all of our clients. I'm dedicated to ensuring the health and happiness of our clients and their families.
Grace Reyes, Recruitment Specialist– Hi, I'm Grace. I have 6 years’ experience in the Customer Service and Retention industry and a general enthusiasm to marry passion, excellent service, and satisfied clients together. As our agency’s Recruitment Specialist, I can tell you that recruiting Caregivers is a challenge, but I pride myself on reaching above that hurdle and seeking candidates who not only meet the requisite skills and role tenure but who are truly passionate about their craft. Getting the right people hired and keeping them engaged as an employee of BrightStar is as important as meeting the needs of our clients.
A unique strength that I bring to my role includes my perseverance; I simply won’t give up easily when presented with a task, as challenging as it may be. I experience great fulfillment in connecting people to job opportunities and optimism about helping shape long-term career paths. Helping people out as much as I can is something I love to do.
