Robbin Beebe, CEO and Founder
Divine Home Care opened its doors in 2007, under the entrepreneurial leadership of Robbin Beebe. The journey is one of perseverance, motivation and divine timing.
Robbin began her healthcare journey in 1986 in Kansas City, Missouri. Her “mid-west” work ethic, obtained from hard-working parents, propelled her to move up the ladder from a customer service position at Foster Medical on to a successful Sales and Sales Management career.
Along this journey Robbin found she was particularly drawn to her senior clients. Their stories, their passion for their families, and their passion for life. Even the sometimes grumpy clients were endearing. As the healthcare industry evolved, so did her career. Her journey involved transferring to multiple cities and facing new challenges. Through it all she still carried that work ethic, passion for learning and love for the senior community.
In 1999, a career opportunity brought Robbin to beautiful Northern California, a place that instantly felt like home. She was recruited by a private-duty care agency in 2002 to open and manage offices in the Northern California territory. After a sudden closure of the care agency in early 2007, Robbin’s favorite quote: ‘Action creates motivation’ ignited a dream-chasing adventure. It was the perfect opportunity to fulfill her long-time desire of business ownership. Utilizing her past 3 decades of experience in healthcare, and her 15 plus years of community senior advocacy in the Bay Area, Divine Home Care was born. “We have an obligation to take care of our seniors, and I am honored to be a part of this historical time in these generational trail-blazers’ aging years.”
