Our guest Amanda Francis is the owner and administrator of a pediatric home health care company called Star Kids. With a heart’s desire in pediatrics Amanda began her career in pediatric care but quickly moved to acute care working in marketing and case management roles.
With the help of her husband, Amanda designed each aspect of her business to meet her passions and personal goals. Fueled by her fire to offer patient-centered care, Amanda stepped out on her own, overcoming her fears and leaving her current job behind.
Starting with a business license, Amanda took the proper steps to get her business off the ground–from CMS to finding patients, the entire process took over 20 months! Now Star Kids helps children from 0-26 by taking on shifts and offering compassionate and professional care from the comfort of their homes.
Years ago Amanda and her husband birthed a miracle baby with Charge Syndrome. Coming back to their small townhouse from the hospital, Amanda and her husband experienced a huge invasion of privacy having nurses in their home 24/7. While those nurses helped hold her family together, Amanda has experienced pediatric home care firsthand, which enables her to better care for her patients and their families.
