Our Team

Director Debe

Debe - Community Liaison

Debe began her career as a Recruiter for a Fortune 500 company in Chicago. Although she loved her job, she and her husband left the big city for a small town in the WNC mountains where they would raise their family.

At age 11, Debe’s mom, an RN, broke her back and was confined to bed for several months. In caring for her mom, she learned skills she would use in a future role she had not yet imagined. The opportunity to care for her mom and many other family members throughout her life was an honor and a blessing.

Using those opportunities and experience in caregiving and recruiting, Debe opened the first in-home care agency in WNC & Northeast Georgia. She secured a Nursing Pool License for her company which she owned and operated for 25 years.

Debe eagerly joined Careheartedly in April 2021 as the agency was forging its’ path through home care! She brings professionalism and a love for home care as she enjoys working with our fascinating clients and our inspiring caregivers!

 

Tonya - Agency Director

Tonya is a native of WNC and was born and raised in Hendersonville. Tonya was very close to her grandmother growing up. Through a church program her grandmother ran, she started volunteering at a young age for seniors in the area providing small household services and companionship.  Her love and passion for helping people grew and led her to attend Blue Ridge College and receive her CNA, CNA 2, RNA, Med Tech, and MA license by the early age of 19.

For the next 10 years she worked hands-on as a caregiver with Hospice and other healthcare facilities specializing in memory care units for Alzheimer's and dementia patients. Due to her parents owning businesses in the area she also highlighted as a manager to help her parents out with their companies. During this time she decided to go back to school for Business Management. While still enrolled in classes, she accepted an entry level position at a Fortune 500 healthcare company and was quickly promoted to Training Supervisor.

Tonya's love for people and her passion for helping others eventually led her back into the healthcare field when her mother-in-law got sick and eventually went on Hospice care. Even though she loved her job she chose to leave it to keep her mother-in-law at home and care for her up until her passing. In 2021, she joined CareHeartedly, finally finding a company that combined her clinical and business skills with her passion for helping seniors.

 

Operations Manager Tonya
RN Supervisor Susan

Susan - RN Supervisor

Susan has been an RN, BSN for 29 years, graduating with honors from Emory University School of Nursing in 1993. She has worked in a variety of settings including Child Care Health, Alternative School Health, Public Health, Pulmonary Health, Assisted Living and for the last six years, Home Care.

She brings with this experience a sincere interest in assisting seniors and their families. She believes that many of the challenges of aging both medically and emotionally can be successfully managed by allowing the client to stay in their own homes.

With that in mind, Susan strives to construct individualized care plans that can assist in meeting these stay-at-home goals. She considers it a privilege to have the opportunity to meet and work with these families in times of transition and need. She welcomes the chance to contribute ideas and strategies that may assist them in making hard, age related decisions and choices concerning their care.

Susan states: “It is my hope that through providing quality in-home care services, the realities of aging can be accepted and proactively faced all while receiving excellent care and not having to leave home.”

On a personal level Susan loves the outdoors and animals of all kinds. She lives on a four acre mini-farm that she shares with two horses and two dogs. She actively participates in hiking, kayaking, camping and gardening and also enjoys sports of all kinds, especially playing pickleball for the last few years.  Susan’s idea of a perfect vacation is camping in a beautiful spot by the water and sitting around a campfire with her do

 

Jennifer - Recruiting and Onboarding Specialist

Jennifer was born and raised in beautiful western North Carolina. She developed a compassion for helping others early in life. Her compassion led her to start a career in Early Childhood Education. She remained in this field for 10 years until a close family member became ill and she left her job to care for her.  During this time her heart led her to change directions and go into senior care. In 2015 she obtained her certified medication aide at Gaston College and started working in assisted living. She then expanded her knowledge by taking additional courses to specialize in Alzheimer's and dementia care. Shortly after moving to the memory care unit, she was promoted to supervisor in charge. In December of 2020, she became a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant.

In January of 2021 she accepted employment with CareHearteldy as a caregiver because she wanted to be able to provide the one-on-one attention and the specialized care her loving heart knew so many people needed. She was offered a position as the Administrative Assistant after being with the company for just a little over a year. Her clinical and supervisory skills combined with her loving heart make her the perfect fit for this new role. Jennifer still works as a caregiver for the company also and is loved by all the clients that have the luck of having her provide care for them.
