Providing Advocacy and guidance
Michelle earned her Bachelors of Science at the University of Washington in 2011, one of the best nursing schools in the country. Michelle has over six years of nursing experience in a variety of settings. She is also a member of the Aging Life Care Association as an Associate Care Manager.
Michelle’s experience started out at a hospital on the cardio-thoracic floor. During her time there, she received advanced training in providing care for patients undergoing heart transplants, heart surgeries, and heart failure, in which patients were receiving a substantial level of care within an intense environment.
Michelle also provided nursing consultations and care for a local residential rehabilitation center. The primary residents were those with developmental disorders of all ages, and Michelle supported their medical care and coordination, and found opportunities to empower the residents’ independence. Michelle gained valuable experience caring for patients with mental health issues, behavioral challenges, and chronic diseases. Many of the residents also had difficulty with verbal expression; however, Michelle was able to address their needs by examining more than verbal language and investigating their surroundings and connecting with residents one-on-one. Michelle aims to empower her patients and provide them with compassionate care. She is a firm believer in chronic disease management.
Michelle will go to great lengths to provide individualized care no matter what obstacles may stand in the way. Whether her clients need a quick wound patch, or an advocate in the doctor’s office, Michelle brings professionalism and passion to her clients and their families.
Michelle grew up in Washington, and in her free time, she enjoys caring for her two young children.
Jane graduated with both her Bachelor of Social Work and her Master of Social Work from the University of Texas-Arlington. She was an Army brat, having spent most of her childhood in Texas, but also in South Korea and Alaska. Her passion for working with the geriatric population began with a professional internship at a geriatric clinic and continued throughout her career with professional experience in acute settings, clinics, and in the community. Most recently, she provided emotional support and case management for hospice patients in King County.
Hanahn Korman began her nursing career in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Observing, in those early days, that outcomes were frequently heartbreaking, she next sought an area of nursing that held more hope for patients and their families, and changed her concentration to rehabilitation nursing. In 1981, she facilitated the discharge-to-home for the first vent-dependent quadriplegic ever discharged directly from an Intensive Care Unit. And in 1983, Hanahn relocated to Seattle where she pioneered a new paradigm in home health, starting her own home health agency designed specifically to serve the needs of ventilator-dependent patients. This endeavor soon brought her full circle, providing hope and care for today’s children who are the success stories of the modern-day NICU. Fedelta is pleased that Hanahn has chosen to share her expertise, insight, and commitment to quality care with our clients.
Kris Kirwan earned her B.A. in Social Work & Psychology from Utah State University in 1993. After raising four children, she added her Medical Assisting and Home Care Aide certificates to her repertoire. Kris has worked in the Medical, Home Care, and Home Health field for over 15 years. Kris has 15 years management experience and finds joy in teamwork! Kris’ passion for working with the geriatric population began early, as she worked alongside her mother as her grandfather’s primary caregivers. Kris grew up in Woodinville, Washington, and that is where she currently resides. She enjoys biking and walking her dogs on the riverside trail in her spare time. A few unique things about Kris are that she lived in Scotland for 8 years, she worked on a fishing boat in Alaska during the summer to earn money for college, and she is enjoying her new role as a grandmother! Kris takes pride in her natural abilities to advocate for seniors, their families, and those who serve them!
