Christine Schumann, Owner

Christine Schumann has a bachelor’s degree in Financial Management and Economics from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, as well as a Master’s in Business Administration, also from the University of St. Thomas.  She has held various roles in financial management throughout her career, but always knew she wanted to have her own business someday.  Christine was born and raised in the Midwest and still resides in the Twin Cities area.

“I am excited to be part of the FirstLight family of small business owners. My former job ended at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and with a lot of time to think and reflect, coupled with the emotions of not being able to be near loved ones, I knew I wanted something different and meaningful for the next chapter in my life. As I explored and learned about the home care industry, I felt a strong connection to its purpose and value to those in need of home care services. I thought about my own grandmother who, at age 93, is still able to live in her own home and would not want it any other way. I thought about a friend whose father suddenly became ill and she was forced to juggle work, family, and taking care of her father, and what a difference home care would have made to her and her family. I remembered back to when I had each of my three children, and how much it would have helped to have someone in my home a few times a week to cook dinner and help with laundry so that I could focus on what was most important. I heard stories of people in live-in care facilities with high caregiver-to-patient ratios, and how so many were forced to isolate during the pandemic. These are just a few of the examples that tugged on my heartstrings and led me to the decision to invest in a home care business. Home care isn’t about simply providing needed services, it’s about changing lives, and that is something I am proud of and committed to doing each and every day.”
