ST. LOUIS, MO -- October 13, 2020 -- Veterans Home Care (VHC) announces Angel Russell, case manager, has been named One of the Top Veterans in the Workplace by St. Louis Small Business Monthly magazine. Russell joins a select group of six veterans, recognized as the best in the region. Russell, who served in the US Army, was highlighted for not only serving her country with pride and dedication, but also using her talents and experiences to help build one of the region’s fastest growing companies. She and the other honorees are featured in the October, 2020 issue of Small Business Monthly. “We are so proud of Angel. She started at Veterans Home Care in November, 2018 to be an enrollment specialist and was quickly promoted to case manager in the client services department. She has a lot of responsibility ensuring our clients are getting the services they need from one of the 3,800 home care agencies in our provider network. She has accomplished so much in a relatively short period of time, and we look forward to great things from Angel in the future,” said Bonnie Laiderman, CEO and Founder. Russell joined the Army at age 23 as a private first class in September 2007. She served until March 2011 with a promotion to specialist and one deployment to Guantanamo Bay. Upon leaving the military, she searched for a company that aligned with her personal mission. She realized she wanted to assist other veterans who desired to stay in their homes and live with dignity. “Veterans Home Care is truly committed to improving the quality of life for those who served our country and their surviving spouses. Whether it’s helping them with their paperwork to receive the VA’s Aid and Attendance Benefit or introducing them to the VetAssist® Program, we don’t abandon people and that is just so important,” Russell said.
