  2. 2. The inspiration for BrightStar came from our own familyexperience. When our late Grandma was suffering fromcancer, we were surprised by how difficult it was to find qualityhomecare professionals to help care for her. We made calls, leftmessages, and did a lot of waiting. It took a long time beforewe finally found people we could trust. We are forever gratefulfor the help our caregivers provided during our time of need.
  3. 3. The creation of BrightStar stems from our journey with ourGrandma. We made a promise to her that we would create agreat company with a great purpose: To provide families andtheir loved ones with the highest level of accessible homecare,dignity, and personal attention they need and deserve.

  7. 7. Bonnie Hellickson | Branch ManagerI have 30+ years in health care starting with working as a CNAin a hospital, EMT and MA. In 1980, I began working in homecare and found I really loved the one on one experience. Ibecame the manager of a Medicare based agency and stayedin that position for 20 years.After retirement for 2 years, Shelly found me and I came onboard with this “new idea” called BrightStar. Needless to say Iwas hooked and have been here ever since. The best part of myjob is it changes every day, I move from direct patient care, toproblem solving, to training with new franchisees. It is alwaysnew and rewarding.
  8. 8. Brenda Montes | Staffing CoordinatorI have been in the healthcare field for over 13 years. I startedas a medical receptionist and then shifted my focus to specializein manage care. I went on to billing and staffing for HomeHealth Care and felt like this was somewhere to expand mycareer to assist and help those in need. I have come to enjoythis above all things.While working for Home Health Care there were things that ourfacility could not provide to our patients. BrightStar presentedtheir services that they provided to clients and I was very impressedby them. I eventually sought a position with their company, whereI now enjoy the ability to help those in need and work and learndirectly with the Founders of BrightStar.
