Home Care is Not a Career, It’s a Calling
We know your first priority when choosing a home care provider is finding someone you can trust and rely on… someone who will care for your loved one as you would, and as we would our own. We’ve been where you are, and this is one of the main reasons we chose to be in this business.
Deb Moerland, owner of FirstLight Home Care Greater Lansing, is an educator who has a passion for to teaching and helping others. She taught high school and online college courses in Educational Technology, Math, and Computer Science. In addition to teaching, she is often a leader in faculty development and has trained online instructors from several online universities. She earned her Ed.D. from Argosy University Online, a Master of Arts in Educational Technology and Instructional Design from Michigan State University, and a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education.
Deb was inspired to doing something more for the community as she saw more and more people needing help. She was compelled to own a FirstLight Home Care business because of the opportunities to educate others about the options for seniors and others who may need some extra care. “After years spent in an academic setting, I wanted to start a business that continues to fulfill my passion for helping others and makes an important impact in my local community,” explained Deb. “My goal is to improve the quality of life for all our clients and their families.”
Deb is married to her husband, David, and they enjoy spending time with family. They also like to go camping, go to baseball games, and go biking when there is time. One fun fact about Deb is that she is an avid animal lover and currently has 11 dogs and 6 cats she has rescued from animal shelters and rescues mostly.
