In 1991, Dennis and Peggy Brown interviewed a young woman who wanted a chance to prove herself. She was working at a dead end job, but knew she had so much more to offer the right employer. After a series of interviews, the owners of CareStaf, a new company less than 2 weeks old, made the wrong decision. They went with another candidate. Very quickly they realized their mistake and made the epic decision of hiring Mary Fernau. It has been 22 years since Mary started working for CareStaf. Subtract the few years that she spent with her small children, and the rest as they say is history.
Mary, Dennis and Peggy along with a group of terrific staff, have built CareStaf into a major Private Duty and Staffing company in the Kansas City area. Mary has a drive that uniquely qualifies her to help find the best candidates to fill our client's needs. She understands what a private duty client goes through. She strives to make sure they have the staff that make them comfortable and the schedule that works best for them. She listens to their concerns and welcomes their thanks. Knowing that even if she doesn’t hear any, they appreciate CareStaf. Mary makes scheduling fun! She also makes it look much easier than it is. She loves it and makes everyone around her love it! She always finds a way to make sure that all of our clients have what they need. Things wouldn’t be the same at CareStaf without Mary. Thank you for all of the years of dedicated service to us. We hope for many more years together!
