Jason Sanders

Jason S., RN, - Nursing Manager & Client Services Supervisor (3 years):

Jason was raised in Fairbanks, Alaska and earned a BA in Anthropology at the university. After a few of life’s little detours he stumbled into care giving and found he was suited for it. He spent two year as a live-in caregiver in Alaska before moving to Portland for the warmer weather. After two years of care giving in Portland, he decided to pursue a higher level of education and was accepted into the nursing program at OHSU. He has since graduated and joined the amazing team at No Worries Care, first as a caregiver and now as the newest nurse on the team. He is looking forward to settling into his role here and helping to provide exceptional care to the people we serve.

Jeanne Taylor

Jeanne T., RN, - Client Services Supervisor (2 years):

In service to her Italian, Czechoslovakian neighborhood, Jeanne began exhibiting her interest in nursing at age 6 dressed in a white nurse’s uniform with a ‘real’ nurse’s cap (a bit big, but it still did the job!) handing out Dum-Dum suckers to patients in her father’s Family practice office located on their property behind their home in Brookfield, Illinois. Community was an important aspect of health care at this time, an era gone by. A house call might be an emergency, a baby on the way, or comfort given while heaving from nausea. Patients’ homes were a large part of where he practiced medicine. Over the years Jeanne continued “nursing” for her father after moving to Portland, Oregon working the office window greeting patients, and assisting with procedures when needed. In college, however, she succumbed to the lure of a literary life and degrees in English prevailed over the nursing sciences.

As a teacher for over 20 years, Jeanne has interacted with diverse and varied communities. She’s taught the language arts and literature from kindergarten through adult evening programs, even in Japan. The nursing instinct rekindled. As a RN-combo -English teacher, Jeanne saw so many attractive and needed opportunities to serve people everywhere and Jeanne decided to get her RN.

Jeanne finished nursing school working as a caregiver for No Worries In-Home Care. When the opportunity surfaced to participate in a much needed service to the greater community via the START@Home division, Jeanne sought to be a part of it.

Adriana Derrah

Adriana D., RN, - Safety Committee Chair & Client Services Supervisor (1 year):

I grew up in Beaverton, Oregon and graduated from Oregon State University with a degree in Exercise and Sport Science. Shortly after graduating I started the accelerated nursing program at OHSU. I recently married my high school sweetheart and we are looking forward to adopting a dog to start growing our family. In the future I would like to get a Masters in Public Health and travel doing medical missions with my husband, as he is also in the medical field. In the meantime, we love to go hiking, kayaking, camping, and visiting the library. I will always say “yes!” to a game of volleyball or a night of line dancing. At some point in my life I would love to be a Zumba instructor because it combines my love of fitness and dancing.

Lisa Lyche

Lisa L., Administrative Assistant (1 year):

Lisa began caregiving in 1996. She quickly became an Assistant Manager for a Group Home caring for those with developmental disabilities. She found this very rewarding and enjoyed working with this adult population for the next 5 years. Following that experience, Lisa spent the next 12 years in different sections of the mortgage industry. We all know how that ended up!  Her sister Stacy told her about an opening at No Worries In-Home Care. Due to her experience with recovery groups, she was hired onto the START@home team.  She jumped at this opportunity to work in a wonderful environment, doing what she loves; caring for people.  Lisa currently holds a chapter position for Oxford Houses Inc., a clean and sober recovery-based housing project. She acts as a mentor to the women living in Oxford homes in the Washington County area. Addiction recovery and treatment is a passion in her life. Lisa has a son, a daughter, and a Chihuahua named Ponelope that she absolutely loves. She went to school to be a florist to express her creativity & she continues to enjoy floral arranging. Lisa also enjoys many other hobbies such as quilting and painting. She has a great sense of humor, and loves talking with people.

Stacy Giesbrecht

Stacy G., - Scheduling Coordinator (13 years):

I started out as a caregiver in 1999 working in an Adult MRDD home. I relocated and decided to get a better job. I found No Worries in 2002. I enjoyed the Healthcare industry so much I decided to go to college for Certified Medical Assisting. A week after starting College my husband and I found out we were expecting our third child. I decided to continue on with school and plunged forward-giving birth the day after finals! After finishing up with school I worked another job that I did not enjoy as much as I had anticipated. I found my way back to No Worries. It really is a great company to be part of. I worked as a Caregiver for almost 10 years before I was asked to join the administrative staff in the office as a Scheduling Coordinator. Working with No Worries has been an amazing experience for me. I have three very active and spunky boys who keep me on my toes all the time. In the winter I enjoy roasting marshmallows on and open bon fire and making smores. I do however, prefer spring and summer to winter and fall because those are the months I can start planning and planting in my garden, picking out flowers for my yard and hauling my family down to the river for all day trips to swim, read and play in the sand while snacking on picnic lunches .
