Meet CRM: Julie Hickerson
Julie joined Adara Home Health in February of 2020 as a Customer Relations Manager at Adara’s Blaine Office. Before changing her focus to home health care, her experience consisted of working within Assisted Living Communities for eight years, first as Director of Life Enrichment and then as Resident Services Manager. She started and facilitated the first Parkinson’s Support Group in a new assisted living community in 2018, and in June of 2019, she received her Housing with Services Management Certificate from Leading Age MN. In 2021 she was selected to serve as the Isanti County Representative for the Central Minnesota Council on Aging Advisory Committee.
Currently, she is working on a double major in Marketing and Business Management at Rasmussen University and will graduate in December of 2021. Her mission is to assist physicians and care planners in discovering ways for patients to receive safe and personalized care in their homes. As a team member of the Blaine Office of Adara, she is fulfilling her passion for caring for seniors while preserving the patient’s dignity and providing the best care possible.
Julie is most proud of her sons, Thomas and Tanner and she enjoys daily walks with her Jack Russell Terrier, Delta. During the summer months all of them like to be out in a boat (or canoe) with a line in the water!
Our customer relations managers (CRM’s) serve the surrounding communities of our branch office locations by promoting awareness of our industry and company while emphasizing our capabilities to provide a full range of home health care services. CRM’s provide liaison and discharge support to the facilities and professional referral sources they serve.
