Owner, Tina Hodgson brings a passion for community engagement, relationship building, workforce development and employee engagement. Her education and work experience background is in business: with an undergraduate and masters degree in business (MBA) as well as a project management designation (PMP). She is excited to combine her experience and passion of making lives better all while following her dream. She has been blessed to spend most of her career locally in Chatham. The first decade of her professional career, she started in the telecommunications industry and loved the experience of starting a business from the ground up. For the next eighteen years, she worked in the natural gas industry, most of those years leading a team of people, while she raised her family with her husband.
She loves the community in Chatham and has always been a part of it. In the past fifteen years, she was actively involved in two very large projects getting started: she was a board member and the original Chair of the New Building Committee for the Blenheim Kent Golden Eagles Gymnastics Club, where her children did gymnastics, for 8 years. She applied for grants, fundraised, worked with the municipality and recruited volunteers. Through the extraordinary efforts of local people, the club is now in a beautiful new building that they can grow in! She was also the original Chair of the United Way CK Amazing Race and held the role for the first 3 years since its inception. This annual event ran for 10 years to raise funds for the Chatham-Kent United Way. She feels so lucky to be part of a small town community and have such amazing opportunities to get involved!
A few years ago, Tina’s mother had a fall and fractured her pelvis in two places. Almost everyone she chatted with in the community had their own story of a loved one needing care and experiencing the stress of not only managing their own day-to-day life as well as being a caregiver for that loved one. As a daughter, she wanted to do everything she could to make sure her mom was taken care of and know that others feel the same for their loved ones. Nurse Next Door gives that peace of mind to people.
Tina chose Nurse Next Door because their philosophies aligned. She is the most excited about having a team that will make a point of creatively removing barriers so their clients are able to do the activities they once loved.
Her Care Team will be bringing Nurse Next Door’s unique concept when it comes to elderly home care, which is “Happier Aging”. This is what drew Tina to Nurse Next Door’s brand in the first place. To Tina, Happier Aging means: “loving and laughing at every chance! Infusing things that make me happy into my every day life, and appreciating the unexpected moments that life brings my way.”
