After many years working in Corporate America, I felt something was missing. A good friend offered a unique challenge and gave me a deep sense of purpose.  As a dedicated and well respected senior care RN specialist for over 20 years, she was continually witness to her patients’ difficulties with staying medication safe in their home.  As of 2013 Medicare declined paying for this service.  After many months of research, we established Personal Med Management to offer in-home medication reconciliation and compliance.  Being compassionate driven, there is nothing more satisfying than going beyond ethical to a vested interest in our patients well-being.
