Shasta Shinn

Business Support Manager

Shasta has been in the healthcare field for over 12 years. Most of her years’ experience in the healthcare field was spent in hospice care. It was during Shasta’s time in the field of hospice that she began to observe how difficult it was to find great quality assistance for those who need it.  This has been the driving force in the passion that Shasta has developed for assisting seniors, their families, and people in her community that she loves so much.  Shasta is also experienced in program management, employee engagement, and training.

Shasta’s experiences have helped her appreciate the heart and passion needed in the career of a caregiver. This has helped Shasta fully understand and be empathetic to the needs of all her clients.
