Steve is a Certified Senior Care Manager, CEO and Founder and has been involved within the medical device industry since 1994. He has held Account Executive, Sales Representative and Business Development roles throughout his career. Steve has worked with prestigious medical device companies such as KCI, Smith & Nephew and Celleration over the past several years. He also entertained a Business Development Manager role for TruDiligence and gained a great understanding in the criminal background industry. In fact, he’s incorporated aggressive background checks through TruDiligence as the gold standard.
Steve often gets asked this question, ‘Steve, are you a Veteran?’ and his response is a bit unique.
In the fall of 1988, Steve joined the US Army Reserves in Oklahoma City. He attended monthly visits to the 807th Medical Brigade in Oklahoma City, OK. His MOS was to become a ‘Surgical OR Tech’ and was slated to attend Basic Training in Fort Sam Houston on September 6, 1989. However, the day he was to ship out, the physicians at MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) in Oklahoma City, noticed his physical had expired. That same day, it was revealed he encountered ‘migraine headaches’ with the medical staff and was declined to move forward with his military career. In short, Steve served in the US Army Reserves for about one (1) year and does not consider himself a Veteran and often has said, ‘My one-year stent in the reserves is nothing compared to those men and women that served Active Duty during any war time!’
Today, Steve and his entire staff possess the utmost respect for those Veterans he visits frequently… it’s the primary reason this company was started in the first place.

Sandy Brown comes to Veterans Aide at Home with 20+ years of experience working with Veterans and Seniors within the Denver and surrounding community. Sandy worked in a Medical Doctors office for 9 years providing patient care, support and referrals. She has volunteered to serve with Disabled Veterans and their families. Sandy has the heart to care for Veterans in part because her father was a WWII Veteran serving in the US Navy in the South Pacific. She feels that the biggest honor of her life was caring for her father when he became ill. Her grandfather served in the Army during WWI, and her nephew is currently serving in the US Army after a tour of duty in Afghanistan. The service of her family throughout the years is a great source of pride for Sandy. She is so proud to work with those who bravely served our country.
Sandy has the attitude that anything is possible for ‘her Vets’ and we’ve seen her go above and beyond her job description in helping Veterans and widows with whatever they need. It’s a pleasure to have her on our team.
