Office Staff:

Karen Herbison - Owner / Director
Hello Chippewa Valley, I'm Karen Herbison, the proud co owner with my husband Eddy Visiting Angels that serves all of Chippewa Valley and surrounding areas. After a17 year business career in AZ and PA, her Husband, Eddy and their two daughters, Sara and Kate returned home to Wisconsin. Wisconsin folks are most friendly and we are all family here. There is nothing better then loving on people and that is exactly what we do at Visiting Angels. My hope and goal is best stated in Matthew 25:21 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

Eddy Herbison-Owner/Treasurer
Hello Chippewa Valley! I'm Eddy Herbison, the proud co-owner (along with my wife Karen) of the Visiting Angels office serving all of Chippewa Valley and surrounding areas. My experience includes working as a technical analyst in a position I’ve had for 30 years. Although I do not have a caregiving background, I do share my wife’s compassion with caring for our clients. It has even been known for me to have taken clients out to dinner. My favorite verse is found in 1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

Thea Bell - Office Administrator
I grew up in this area had a grandfather that was a Doctor and many family members who followed that role and jumped into Health care. I went to college and graduated from UW Superior with a Bachelor of Science in Art therapy. I have always enjoyed Gerontology and the continuing education I get working in health care. When I am not busy working, my son Tegan who is 9, keeps me busy with wrestling, swim team and Boy Scouts. We enjoy traveling and anything that gets us outside and active.

Lindsay Hansen - Care Coordinator
Lindsay is the Care Coordinator for Angels. She has lived in the area all her life and has brought great organization to the position. Lindsay loves our caregivers and instinctively knows how to match them with clients. When Lindsay is away from the office she spends time with her two son's, Deshawn 13 and Daylen 10. They both love basketball and she has found great enjoyment watching them play the sport.
