Melissa

I was born and raised in Montana. I grew up in Harlowton. That is where I got my CNA certification when I was 17 years old. I continued working as a cna after high school with a temp agency named Prioricare Staffing solutions. I worked all over the state in nursing homes, it ended up taking me to Ennis Montana. I lived in Ennis for 15 years and worked 8 years at to the  Madison Valley Manor while continuing traveling part time. Four years ago I moved to Bozeman where I started working for two home health companies, Advocare and First Choice Home Heathcare.

     In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my 2 dogs Gema a 10 year old pit/mix and Chance an 11 your old Papillon. Whether its going to snowfill dog park or taking a hike in the surounding mountains. Floating the Madison is always a great time with friends and family.

Cailynn

I also love to cook and anything to do with organizing/cleaning. I joined the AdvoCare team because I absolutely love to help people and contribute to my community. I enjoy building bonds with clients and getting to know them more and more each visit.

Grace

Hello, my name is Grace and I am a senior at MSU studying microbiology on the path to becoming a Physicians Associate! I knew my purpose in life was to provide care and comfort to those through healthcare during a medical missions trip to Haiti, and my determination is fueled by my faith, friends and family. I have provided patient care in third world countries, pre-hospital emergency settings and to those who have disabilities or need extra assistance, no matter what that may entail. Whatever the environment, my #1 goal is to ensure that those I come in contact with feel important and empowered, and to impact their lives in the greatest way that I can.
I joined AdvoCare because after working in an assisted living facility for a year, I quickly learned I was unable to spend quality time with those I was seeing throughout my shift. I missed the companionship and ability to listen, learn and help without time constraints. I am looking forward to the ability to focus on each client as an individual through this position.
