Owner & Home Care Advocate
After 25 years as a leader in the IT industry at two Fortune 500 companies, Tom Chastain decided to follow his heart. Acting as a caregiver for his own mother inspired him to take those leadership skills and combine them with his desire to serve people in need— full time. Tom leads The Nursing Team by ensuring operational excellence, building strategic partnerships, participating in community involvement and serving as a backup for team members. He loves meeting new people, helping families solve challenges, mentoring others and building relationships. Empathy is one of his greatest traits and it brings him joy to add value to others—especially the elderly. Tom is a devoted father and husband, loves the outdoors and will never say “no” to a game of golf.
Owner & Home Care Advocate
Kathleen also brings an inspiring caregiving experience to the table after being the caregiver for her own mother as well. While she retired at the height of her career as a VP in the marketing industry to raise her two children, she now serves three roles. She is a Victim’s Advocate Liaison for trauma survivors. She acts as the internal and external Marketing Director for The Nursing Team and she is a devoted mom and wife. Kathleen is passionate about listening to others and working with them to uncover the root issues and then developing solutions. But perhaps her greatest gift is her ability to find JOY in every challenge, struggle and accomplishment.
Home Care Ambassador
You’re in great hands with Terrel! We could leave it at that, but we just can’t. Armed with a degree in Family Studies and Human Development, her adventurous journey in social services has taken her through children’s ministry, teen ministry, family counseling, foreign student services, pregnancy resource centers, sex trafficking survivor programs and senior services. And it’s landed her right where she belongs— right here at The Nursing Team. Her heart of gold was made for seniors. The forgotten words, the repeated stories, the smiles of a bingo win—for Terrel, that’s what it’s all about. “If only we take the time to listen, we might find we’ve been gifted a lifetime full of wisdom!” she says. Terrel is our Community Ambassador, a natural networker that serves as the relationship developer with clients and referral partners.
Operations and Care Specialist
Miranda is the air-traffic controller of The Nursing Team. When it comes to screening potential caregivers applicants, creating caregiving schedules, and conducting Care Consults, she is always on her “A” game. But she doesn’t stop there. With 18 years of experience in nursing facilities, hospital settings, hospice care, and homecare, Miranda also serves as a back-up caregiver. She is a licensed CNA with a degree in Business of Healthcare Management, CPR certified and a Level One Med Aide (L1MA). The only thing bigger than Miranda’s credentials is her heart. She has wanted to serve others since she was a little girl and loves to make people laugh. Her free time is spent enjoying her two teenage kids, cooking and hopefully soon…a good Royals game!
When you think of The Nursing Team, we want you to think of a team with heart, passion, and skills. This is exactly what you get when you sign on with The Nursing Team. Some clients need that tender touch and others need a well-trained caregiver that knows what they are doing, but we believe our clients deserve both. Our hiring process takes all of this into account. Each caregiver is hired for the special skill set, certification, and licensing that is required to fulfill the obligations of care and that personal touch. In addition, each team member’s references are checked; backgrounds are screened through several different sources; and, they are required to show proof of state mandated health requirements. The Nursing Team is proud to employ a variety of caregivers who genuinely find JOY™ in caring for others during their most vulnerable times
