Deanne was born and raised in Tulare. After attending a medical assistant program right out of high school, Deanne discovered her passion for healthcare. She worked initially as a caregiver in client's homes along with assisting in caring for her Granddad. Deanne became a Registered Nurse in 1988. Her nursing experience is primarily in Intensive Care, Emergency Room, Recovery Room, and Nursing Supervision. In 1993, she became involved with geriatrics as a Care Management professional, working with seniors and their families in coordinating health care and residential care. After working in Intensive Care, she felt there is a better way to end of life than a sterile hospital environment. Her love of in-home care started with this experience.
The position evolved into overseeing a large division in California of nursing aide assistance in retirement communities. At one point, she managed 22 locations from Redding to Bakersfield. In 1999, she was hired to create Amdal In Home Care. The company started with 5 employees in one location. Amdal In Home Care currently is in three communities in California with over 150 employees.
Hillary was born and raised in Visalia, CA. She began her career working with the senior population in 1994 while in high school.

In 2002, she received her Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE) Administrator's License while managing an Alzheimer's/Dementia unit in a local assisted living.
Hillary joined Amdal In Home Care in 2004. She is responsible for overseeing all client billing, payroll, and accounts payable processing. She works closely with insurance companies to ensure all requirements are met and client claims are handled in a timely manner. She believes that home care is the most challenging and rewarding senior care environment that she has worked in. After assisting in the care of her grandparents, this became even more clear.
Hillary loves being part of a company that assists people to remain safely in their home.
