Stevie was drawn to home care in the mid-90s, and she began both caregiving and care managing. She began developing teams of exceptional caregivers and personally managed every case. By 1995, Stevie had earned her CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) and CHHA (Certified Home Health Aide) certifications.
In 1996, Stevie started her company, Marin Independent Caregivers Network, a home care referral agency known for its competent, trustworthy, and reliable service. She is proud to say that she knows the home care business from the inside out.
After receiving a degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Syracuse University, Stevie set up practice as a speech therapist in Syracuse. Later, she moved to California and spent 16 years with The Center For Attitudinal Healing in Tiburon, CA, where she worked with individuals and families facing life-threatening illness, loss and grief. Stevie facilitated loss and grief workshops for the Center while also serving on the Center’s Board of Directors.
Stevie’s experience with the Center would later prove to be most valuable in her role as owner and care manager of Marin Independent Caregivers Network.
