Taylor Settles grew up in the panhandle of Texas. Tired of wind and bad weather, he made a move to the Dallas area, and never left. When Taylor was younger, his grandparents’ struggles with both Parkinsons and cancer made an indelible imprint on his life’s perspective. Coupled with his wife’s career in home health, and a mother-in-law who worked in healthcare for 30 plus years, it was almost inevitable that Taylor would also work in the healthcare field. Today he is Customer Service Representative for Health Care Providers of Texas. Taylor loves his work because he is able to provide a broad range of services to his clients, from durable medical equipment to home health services to hospice. Taylor can be reached at 214-228-4098 or 972-735-0821, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stephen Stockdale was born and raised in Maryland. After graduating from high school, he joined the Coast Guard. Later he went to school in New Orleans, ultimately graduating with a marketing degree. Like so many college grads, he immediately put his marketing degree to work doing something completely unrelated (information technology). In 2005, Stephen began working in real estate. After having one of his retail properties vandalized, he installed a wireless camera system so that he could watch over the property from his smart phone. One day one of Stephen’s friends was telling him about his mother, shom while alone in her apartment, had fallen down causing a painful break in both her hip and shoulder. She lay there for three hours before she was able to crawl to an emergency button across the room. His friend commented “If I had only known…” This event spawned the idea to use the technology he had developed for his real estate business in the homes of seniors or disabled individuals, so that family members could “know”, in a secure and private way, that their loved ones were safe – anywhere, anytime. Today, Stephen is the Owner of Safe N Sight, a company that provides state-of-the-art, secure monitoring for many applications, including helping seniors stay safe in their homes! Contact Stephen via the phone at (404) 386-9099, email him at email@example.com, or visit them on the web at www.safensight.com.
