“I come from a long line of nurses; I am actually a 4th generation RN. I’ve always believed in caring for people – it’s always been something I have enjoyed, ever since I can remember. It’s truly a passion of mine.
“There is no better feeling than knowing you truly impacted someone’s life and left an everlasting impression. Whether someone is hospitalized, recovering at home, or needing extra help around the house, the patient and family will always remember how they were cared for. Those are the moments that matter. We are able to touch lives when they are in some of their most vulnerable situations.
“Someone once told me, when you’re healthy you spend all your time working for different things; but when you’re sick you work only for one thing – more time. So I strive each day to care for our patients and families as if they were my own.
“Family time is the most important aspect of my life, so I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my lovely wife, Natalie, and our beautiful 7-month-old daughter, Joslyn. We live on a farm south of Topeka, so we are outside any chance we get, taking care of the cattle and horses. Our other hobbies we enjoy are camping, fishing, hunting, boating, hiking, and traveling. So you can say we spend our fair share of time in the sun, and we don’t mind getting our hands a little dirty.
“I’m relatively new to the world of Home Care, but I was drawn to it because helping people in their home has always been a passion of mine. Working as a nurse, I believe people tend to do better wherever they are most comfortable. The first time I heard of Phoenix Home Care & Hospice, I was at a local hospital in Topeka, and I ran into this young guy (Nick Carroll). We chatted for a while, and I remember after we parted ways thinking ‘Wow, that seems like a great company to work for!’
Three years later, I was fortunate enough to become a part of Phoenix Home Care & Hospice, and I’ve loved just about every minute of it. From the family-like culture, to faith-based principles, I truly love this place.
“Phoenix has been the first job I have had where I truly feel a part of a family. Since my very first day, I was welcomed with open arms and could tell people genuinely cared. I also appreciate that the patient’s best interests are always top priority, no matter what. All that we do is centered around our patients and their individualized needs. We’re not just taking care of a diagnosis, we’re taking care of someone’s mother, father, child, brother, sister, friend – the list goes on and on, but at the end of the day we’re there for this community.
