About Our Staff
Kathy Herrfeldt – Owner/President
Home Care Assistance is the result of a dream and vision I’ve had for many years. I spent my “first “career working in information technology for 29 years until deciding to pursue my dream of running and owning my own company. I opened Home Care Assistance – Sacramento. (HCA) in 2013 and have never regretted my decision. I am passionate about making sure people have the information they need in order to make informed decisions. There is so much to consider before bringing someone into your home and I want to help people understand what they need to know before they get started with care.
Every experience I’ve had leading up to this work has prepared me to lead Home Care Assistance. I studied Cultural Anthropology at Regis University in Denver, Colorado which taught me how to appreciate and work with many types of people. I am a Certified Project Management Professional Certification (PMP) which taught me how to plan, develop and execute a strategy. I learned how to gather requirements and understand needs while working as a consultant for Gartner. Spending so many years in an industry that changes as much as IT does I learned to always be innovative, adapt to change and the importance of communication. I love the fact that I can have such a positive impact on people’s lives.
Robin Mesman – Executive Director / Recruiting Specialist
I have been with Home Care Assistance since 2015 as a Recruiting Specialist and in 2018 I was promoted to Executive Director. At Home Care Assistance my role is more than a job it is a rewarding career where I can make a difference in a senior’s life.
I truly understand what our Care Partners go through on a daily basis. I can use my knowledge and expertise in working with seniors and hiring care partners as a wonderful benefit for the greater Sacramento area serving both our Clients and Care Partners. My passion for helping others in any way possible is what drives every day to see how We Change the Way the World Ages.
Lisa Kahn – Administrative Assistant
I began my career in healthcare administration and management soon after completing High School. As a Health Science major at the California State University East Bay, I was hired as an assistant in a chiropractic office. This sparked my love for working with people, specifically in the healthcare field. By expanding my education in Healthcare Management and attending countless practice management seminars, I have spent over 25 years managing medical offices. In 2018 I took on the role of Administrative Assistant with Home Care Assistance. My primary job is managing and organizing the care notes for our clients and submitting claims to the Long term Care Insurance companies. I am excited to be part of the Sacramento Home Care Assistance Team. I truly enjoy helping people, implementing positive changes and making a difference.
Debi Brown – Client Care Coordinator
Working with seniors started when I cared for my grandparents and my father as they battled through health challenges. In caring for my family I developed a passion for taking care of those in need. I have brought the skills I learned caring for my family to in-home care companies in Sacramento. Through the years I have been given many opportunities to support our clients. A role I remember fondly was as the Director of First Impressions. I had the opportunity to work with clients and families at the beginning stages of care and develop a trusting, professional relationship that lasted for years. In September of 2019, I joined at Home Care Assistance of Sacramento as the Client Care Coordinator. I feel my role is more than a job-it feels like I am working with and supporting a family. I truly feel that I am creating relationships and bonds with our care partners and clients that will last a lifetime. I love how we are Changing the Way the World Ages.
Tonya Napoli – Staffing Manager
I started out in this industry as a care giver for 5 years before being approached to work as a staffing manager. I took a leap of faith and have now worked as a Staffing Manager for several years and never regretted my decision. Caring for someone in need has been something I have always loved and continue to do. Over the years I have so enjoyed being able to provide seniors with the loving care they deserve. Here at Home Care Assistance of Sacramento I am able to bring my expertise in matching our amazing care partners with our beloved clients. I know it changes everyone’s lives for the better – including my own.
