That’s when I’m convinced that what we do is world changing & makes an amazing difference.”

The normal stuff: Page is a licensed Home Health Administrator, and has a Master’s Degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  He is married to Ronda since 1983, and has three great kids- Erin, Nate and Ben.  He’s also one of the authors of "Protecting Your Nest Egg: Fraud Protection for Senior Citizens from Con Artists, Thieves & Scams", "Taking Care of Mom & Dad: A Beginner's Guide to Caring for Your Parents", and “The Character Based Leader- Instigating a Leadership Revolution One Person at A Time”, and the author of 9 other books.  Page has also served as the chairman of the National Franchise Advisory Council for Visiting Angels, and as the Chairman of the Oklahoma Partnership for Home Care.

Nathan Cole- Administrator
Nathan has worked for Visiting Angels since 2011 in both Office Management and Marketing roles.  He is a crazy good dancer, and when he was little he loved Ninja Turtles and the 101 Dalmatian Puppies video.  When asked what he loves the most about his job, Nathan says, “I love being able to not only help the Care Recipient, but also helping the family, by letting them BE the family by allowing our caregivers to take the load of daily work off of them.  That way they worry less about doing chores and more about supporting their loved one.”

The normal stuff:  Nathan is finishing up his Bachelor’s Degree in Business at OSU Tulsa in 2014, and plans to stay on with Visiting Angels, eventually moving into the business and management end of operations.  He has one child- sorta...
