Director of Operations
A graduate of Gettysburg College, Jonathan Goldman has several years of experience in both business and finance. Initially after college Jonathan worked as a financial analyst for a local consulting firm. Jonathan joined The Lisa Vogel Agency in 2013 and handles all agency invoicing, payroll, helps patients navigate long-term care insurance policies, and the company’s financials.
He takes pride in helping clients and their families and shares his sister Lisa’s commitment to excellent customer service. Outside of work, Jonathan stays active by taking hiking trips with his wife and Rottweiler. When he’s not on the trail, you can find him cheering on his hometown teams, the Baltimore Orioles and the Baltimore Ravens.
Director of Client Relations
Chelsea’s interest in healthcare began in high school when she was accepted into the Career & Technology Center’s Allied Health program. Through this program, she completed training, earned her CNA license and began working in an assisted living facility. Chelsea attended Stevenson University where she earned her degree in Human Services. She began working as an intern with The Lisa Vogel Agency and accepted a full-time position after graduation.
Chelsea’s knowledge of home care and previous experience as a CNA allows her to assist with many aspects of the company. At the agency, Chelsea creates and maintains schedules for our clients and their caregivers and provides client support. Outside of work, Chelsea enjoys spending time with her family and traveling.
Timothy S. Bayer
Tim Bayer has been helping others since he was in high school, when he worked at an assisted living and hospice facility. That caring spirit carried through to college, where he studied psychology and began working as a counselor in a residential rehabilitation facility for adults with psychiatric diagnoses. In 2002, Tim began working as a psychiatric technician at Sheppard Pratt Health System, spending time in various units, including the Geropsychiatric and Geriatric Neuro Units. He ultimately chose to work with adult patients with trauma disorders. Inspired by the work and encouragement of those around him, Tim chose to pursue a nursing degree and graduated from the University of Maryland School of Nursing in 2012.
When Tim saw the care and time everyone at The Lisa Vogel Agency put in to meeting the needs of clients, he knew it was a place people could trust.
Tim, who has been working as a registered nurse with the agency for a year, hopes that his easy-going nature relaxes patients. “I want clients to feel at ease when I come to their home,” he said.
Marjorie Schmier first thought about nursing when she was 3 years old, and has now been a Registered Nurse for 43 years. In her role at The Lisa Vogel Agency, Marjorie performs in-home assessments of the patient to determine their needs and what care coordination services will best benefit them. Marjorie is an advocate for her patients and cares about their physical health as well as their psychological health and their safety.
It’s important to Marjorie that patients know she cares about them, so she offers a smile, a handshake or a friendly touch.
Marjorie enjoys the care coordination aspect of being an RN and is happy to be working at an agency that’s well-respected in the community. She truly enjoys every aspect of her job.
Director of Employee Relations
Amanda Tran joined the Lisa Vogel Agency in 2018, after graduating from Stevenson University. Her interest in home care began after taking a class focused on Healthcare Management. As a Human Services major, she was able to hone this interest and develop the necessary skills to pursue a career in the health care field. At the agency, Amanda is responsible for creating client and employee schedules, conducting the on-boarding process for new hires, and facilitating communication between clients, clients’ family members, and employees.
Marketing & Client Services
Lea Desrosiers joined The Lisa Vogel Agency in 2019 with a background in client services, event/social media management and marketing. She graduated from Towson University with a degree in public relations and has experience working in the healthcare advertising industry. Lea combines her knowledge of client services and marketing to oversee all aspects of social media strategy and website administration for LVA, as well as, supports the Director of Employee Relations with screening applicants, new employee onboarding and scheduling.
When Lea was in high school, her grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Witnessing the love and compassion of family coming together to put together a care plan that best suited her grandmother was extremely powerful, and she is grateful to have the opportunity to support other families experiencing similar situations.
A Baltimore native, Lea enjoys cheering on the Baltimore Ravens and spending time in her neighborhood of Locust Point. She is recently engaged and planning a January 2021 wedding!
