Cofounder & CEO
I founded Carely in 2013, inspired by my family’s personal experience caring for my great grandmother in years prior. During that time, I was introduced to every aspect of the care continuum over the course of five years and got to experience the highs and lows of each stage within it. While my family was very close during this time, we were not immune to the stresses that caregiving can bring. So, what began as a personal pursuit to solve the issues my family struggled with, eventually became an obsession to support an industry that does so much for families like my own.
In the past three years I’ve met with incredible people and organizations. I lived in a nursing home (for a week), I’ve shadowed nurses, I’ve met with CEO’s, social workers, marketers, and everyone in-between. I’ve met with families dealing with grief, Alzheimer’s, long-term care, and other intense care situations. Every encounter I’ve had since starting this company has been a learning experience and, most importantly, it’s inspired me!
I’m incredibly grateful to be able to have such a meaningful pursuit and inspiration in my life. I founded Carely with the hope of supporting families, and I realized that part of that opportunity was being able to support those who support those families everyday. I’m humbled and excited to work with industry professionals throughout the care continuum.
When I’m not working on Carely with my awesome team, I’m usually chasing my 3 boys around and trying to spend some time with my amazing wife. I’m a die-hard Ohio State Buckeye Fan and Alumni and call Dayton, Ohio home.
