I worked both private duty, and in a hospital as a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) since 2011. In 2014, I had the opportunity to begin employment for a home care agency as their Human Resource Manager, where I started to understand the characteristics necessary to be an exceptional caregiver. After some time, I took on the role of the agency’s Client Care Coordinator where my role was to understand the needs of the client and to ensure that I was matching the perfect caregiver to complete the client’s care. This is where I began to understand the true impact of individualizing care based on the client’s established routine.
This passion and understanding led me to purchase my own agency in 2019, where I use my complete experience to provide the most personal, fulfilling experience for both client and caregiver.

I am married to my husband Andy since 2016. I have a 26-year-old son Sean, who currently resides in Arizona; and two stepsons, 26-year-old Sean and 23-year old Tyler, who reside in Pennsylvania. Together, Andy and I have two four-legged babies, Mia and Marco.
In our spare time, Andy and I stay active, and we enjoy traveling and seeing the world.
Donna Miller Director of MarketingDonna Miller Director of Marketing
I have worked in Marketing, Sales and Business Development my entire life and possess a proven ability to establish and build strong relationships with clients, peers and staff. I want to be able to assist people with the resources they need to keep their loved ones fulfilled and happy.
I grew up surrounded by love and compassion and learned at a very early age what it meant to be a caretaker, both physically and emotionally. My sister had leukemia and my brother was born with disabilities. They have both since passed and I will always remember their beautiful smiles, their love and appreciation.
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a
listening ear or the smallest act of caring, all
of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
I’ve been happily married to my husband Dean for 33 years and we have a lovely 29-year-old daughter Alex, who is a registered nurse. I love animals and own a standard poodle named Lola.
Tyler Gillen Internet/Office Support ManagerTyler Gillen Internet/Office Support Manager
Tyler Gillen spent the past five years working as a lead in the utilities department of the Pennswood Village Retirement Home. “With that position, I gained the experience of working closely with elderly residents by delivering their food as well as assisting them in moving around the dining area. As a lead, my responsibilities included overseeing the staff to maintain a professional and efficient work environment as well as training new hires the necessary skills for the job,” he said. He aims to bring a smile to the face of everyone he works with. Tyler is the kind of person who helps just because he wants to so when his dear grandparents needed someone to mow the lawn, take them to the grocery store or help around the house, he was there.
Tyler is a recent graduate from West Chester University in August of 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in Communication and Media. He is involved in the community with the Mummers as well as with the Barkann Family Healing Hearts Foundation.
Emily Flanagan Director of Caregiver ServicesEmily Flanagan Director of Caregiver Services
I have worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) since 2009. I worked in many areas of health care including hospitals, nursing home/rehab and home care. I have had many experiences for which I am very grateful and have led me to a detailed skill set.
After deciding to take a turn in my career in 2018, I went from being a CNA to a staffing coordinator. I learned a lot about the administration of home care. That led me into deciding to go to school for Health Policy and Administration. I was very lucky and fortunate to join the team at Homewatch CareGivers in 2020 and look forward to growing as a person and employee!
My husband Ryan and I have been together since 2010 and just got married in 2018! We have 2 beautiful Labs named Abby and Daisy and can’t wait to see what the next chapter in our love story will be! In our spare time we love to travel and spend time with family and friends.
