Meet The Team at ComForCare NW Pittsburgh, PA

Mike Barron wants his entire staff to feel supported, and that is why everyone has access to him 24/7. Mike cares about his staff and makes sure they are supported in every way. He depends on them for feedback, to know what is working, what isn't, and what they need to best do their jobs. Everyone has his cell phone number and he expects them to use it. Professional care for clients' needs day and night is ComForCare NW Pittsburgh's number one goal.

Director of Marketing and Recruiting

Michelle’s passion for honoring and serving the elder community brought her to Comforcare. While growing up in the North Hills area she frequently spent time listening and helping seniors. She enjoyed many years in a sales and marketing career that centered around building relationships while helping to address business challenges. Prior to joining Comforcare she was connecting families with the gift of hospice. “There’s no greater joy then knowing you have made a difference for others.” Michelle helped her own mother and grandmother to age in place and is excited for the opportunity to support the comforcare team to help others do the same.

Meet The Team - NW Pittsburgh | ComForCare - nw-taunia-miles1Meet Taunia Miles

Clinical Supervisor

Taunia always knew she wanted to be a nurse. After graduating from nursing school in 2009, she went to work as an ICU nurse. She quickly realized that ICU and the hospital was not where she felt her true calling. She wanted to connect with patients and families on a deeper level. In 2012, she moved into her current career in home care where she felt more connected to her patients. She found a home with ComForCare, and is now the NW Pittsburgh office's Registered Nurse. Taunia is in charge of overall health care of clients, doing initial assessments, as well as routine check ins to make sure each person is receiving optimal care.
