Meet the Owner

My name is Patty Andresen Knapp and I am the Owner of Visiting Angels in Newport News, Virginia. Our agency provides living assistance to the elderly in their homes, wherever that may be. We take pride in offering the senior community the ability to remain in their homes, independently, for as long as it is possible.

My mother passed away years ago in large part due to poor care during a brief stay in a nursing home. This provided me the inspiration for making sure no other family would have to experience the situation I did. My passions led me to Visiting Angels.

In 2003, Visiting Angels of Newport News was born, run by only myself in a 10 x 10 office.  Today I am proud to say that we are a thriving agency with a staff of over 100 world-class caregivers and office staff!

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Christopher Newport University.
