Following a career in health care management that lasted more than a decade, Anna Holden decided to make the transition to owning her own home care business, Comfort Keepers, which now serves over 450 seniors in the suburbs of Chicago, and employs over 360 caregivers. Because most of her employees and clients tend to be women, Ms. Holden finds herself in the role of both a leader and mentor.
Ms. Holden prepared for his career by receiving a Bachelor of Arts, as well as a Bachelor of Science in pre-medicine, from Loyola University Chicago, then earning a MBA in health care administration Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.
Over the course of her career, Ms. Holden has faced many challenges, as a mother, a wife, a woman in a corporate environment, and a business owner. She has overcome these obstacles by being flexible and creative. Ms. Holden believes her greatest strength is her ability to work with people. She provides compassion, and is a good listener and mentor.
Ms. Holden finds her inspiration from within. When she is faced with a challenge, she digs deeper and gets better because she wants to be a part of the solution. Her greatest accomplishment to date has been moving from the corporate environment to becoming a small business owner. She has found that this venture has made her more humble and grown her appreciation for seniors, their needs, and what they go through. Looking to the future of her career, Ms. Holden hopes to continue to strive to provide excellent quality care to her clients and be there for her staff at all times.
