Meet Our Twin Cities East Metro Home Care Office Team

Jennifer Flores, CEO & Owner

I have worked in the Social Service and Non-profit industry for more than 20 years. I spent over 10 years with YMCAs of Metropolitan Minneapolis and Greater St. Paul working to build strong kids, strong families, and strong communities. After leaving YMCA, I worked for the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota focusing on educating, connecting, and empowering those affected by epilepsy. My passion for working with people lead me to purchase a Visiting Angels franchise. My core business principles are to be the most reliable, responsive, and trustworthy home care agency. It’s the foundation for everything my team and I do, each and every day!

When I was in the second grade, my grandpa was diagnosed with cancer. At the time, I remember my mom spending most of her days and nights caring for him all the way through his last days. I always knew that I wanted to be in the medical field, and dreamed of becoming a doctor when I grew up. Over the years, and a lot of self-discovery, the passion to help families take care of their loved ones and stay at home resonated with my experiences. Visiting Angels has not only provided me with a rewarding job, but a safe space for my professional growth and career pathway.

Seeing my mother take care of my grandma during her last moments shaped me to be compassionate, strong, patient, and to care just like my mom cared for my grandma. I started working with Visiting Angels in 2016 and my passion for this field has grown tremendously due to my life experiences and my mentors along the way. I love working for this company, and meeting all the amazing people that make this job so rewarding and fun!

 

Beverly Howard, Recruitment & Retention Coordinator  Beverly H

I’m the new Recruitment & Retention Coordinator. I have six years of medical experience ranging from para educator, Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), Medical Technician, and Care Director. I am very excited to work with Visiting Angels because I feel that I can give back to the community and use my background as a resource to understand and help our caregivers grow.

 

Julia Washington, Scheduling Coordinator  Julia W

Growing up I knew I had a passion to help the elderly. Over the years, I grew a hunger for the Health Care Industry. Not sure which way to go, I battled between becoming a Medical Assistant or Surgical Technologist. After a bit of research, I soon discovered becoming a Surgical Technologist was out of the question. I just couldn’t “stomach it”. My hunger to discover my purpose in the Health Care Industry didn’t stop there.

Last year, I graduated from a Medical Office Program and applied to Health Care companies, which led me to Visiting Angels. I’m happy to report, my heart is filled with joy knowing that I’m helping support a family’s visions to keep their love one at home. Coordinating caregivers with clients is a big challenge but it sure is worth it! I look forward to my future here at Visiting Angels!

Meet Our Registered Nurses

Alicia Hoemke, R.N.

I am originally from Chile and moved to the U.S. when I was two. Somewhere along the way I developed a passion for the elderly, which could be from growing up away from my grandparents. I have been an R.N. for 8½ years and a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) before that. I worked in assisted living, nursing home, Transitional Care Units (TCU), and hospital settings. After a year of working in mental health home care, I realized that my calling was with the senior population and found this position at Visiting Angels.

I'm here to listen, learn, and to guide to the best of my ability. I look forward to meeting each of you as time goes on and being part of a great care team!

I was born and bred in the, “Field of Dreams” AKA, Iowa. My background is in Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation. I have a passion for geriatrics and promoting independence in a home environment. I’ve worked and lived in Iowa, Colorado, and now Minnesota. I moved to Minnesota in 2017 for my husband’s job as a Video Producer. Last August, we purchased our first home in Saint Paul and share the home with our two adorable kitties named, Einstein and Wheezy. I enjoy biking, hiking, sailing, and spending time with my family. I look forward to meeting the entirety of our Visiting Angels family during home visits!
