Gayle Collins – Director of Operations
I am passionate about giving back to people and assisting patient, families and caregivers with their healthcare needs. I was raised by my grandmother and it was then that I realized working with the aging population was where my true passion is. I’m excited to utilize my personal experience, strong work ethic, and expertise to advocate for my clients and their families by providing the best caregivers. My goal as an Employee Care Manager is to hire, train and coordinate our caregiving staff to assist families with their loved ones by providing the very best care available.

Shannon Gore, MSW MPH – Director of Client Care
I am passionate about providing excellent service and enabling our clients to maximize their independence. From a young age, I have always wanted to make a difference and do meaningful work. This led me from Cleveland Ohio to continue my education in Baltimore MD. My interest in helping others was solidified when I spent time as a Peace Corps Volunteer serving in Namibia, a country in Southern Africa. Upon my return to the U.S. I knew that I had to further my education to truly have a positive impact on someone’s life and the method to do that was to return and obtain a Masters in Social Work. This led me to a career working with individuals with infectious disease and from there I spent multiple years working with individuals with chronic health conditions. Having worked with many individuals affected and infected by various diseases, I chose to pursue a Master’s in Public Health that would allow me the opportunity to make a positive impact on our community.
