Melissa Hochstetler, Wellness Director
I am a nurse, a mother, a wife, a caregiver and an advocate. My family and I live in Goshen, Indiana, with my husband of 15 years, our daughter, and our son. My mother-in-law lives in our home with us. We have 2 dogs. I love my family greatly and value a balanced work/home life. I LOVE nursing! I began in the caregiving field in 1998 working as a Resident Assistant with developmental delayed children. In 2001 I drove by a Long Term Care Facility and thought "I wonder how I get a job in there?" I became a CNA, then a HHA, then a QMA, and then graduated from Ivy Tech with my LPN. I also attended Goshen College for nursing, however my husband became disabled in early 2008, and with 2 small children, it was better to re-direct focus until a later date.
