Carolyn Aijian RN founded Independent Nurse Consulting in 2006, after the owner of Santa Barbara Care Management decided to retire. She had enjoyed working for Dianne Simpkins for several years as a Nurse Case Manager, and Dianne encouraged Carolyn to branch out on her own.
As a freelance Nurse Consultant, she began feeling frustrated with the lack of caregiver supervision supplied by other agencies, and discussed this with her son, Daniel. As an experienced accountant with a Degree in Business, he encouraged her to broaden the services Independent Nurse Consulting offered. This resulted in a structuring of the company, and she branched out and hired her first employees. The result was better coordinated care of clients, and the start of a very successful family business.
Since that time, Carolyn has hired many other employees to round out the services we provide. Dear friend Kathy Garwood was added to the administrative team, and Katie Lekas RN, BSN, Carolyn's daughter, is our Assistant Director of Nurses.
