President and Chief Executive Officer
Melinda joined Thrive SPC in 2020 to manage the Services side of our business—all the people who provide care in the homes and those who support them in our location offices. Her extensive knowledge and experience in high-volume recruitment and retention of nurses, home health aides, and therapists to meet the growing demands of our industry quickly proved invaluable. She was named President and CEO in October of 2021.
Melinda’s husband is a business owner. They have two adult daughters. Melinda has over 25 years of home health care experience, most recently as President, Skilled Nursing Services at BAYADA Home Health Care, the nation’s largest non-profit provider of home health care services. Her experience includes leading office operations from start-up to turn-arounds, as well as multi-site expansion of services in pediatrics, adult nursing, habilitation, adult home health, and assistive care. She has also served as chief recruiting officer and chief people officer, focused on improving the candidate experience and optimizing the onboarding experience for new teammates.
Melinda strives to inspire and motivate others by painting a clear and compelling vision. She has a passion for finding, developing, and retaining top talent who have equal passion for helping the medically fragile children in our care grow and flourish to their full potential.
