Melanie Lamar, RN

Melanie Lamar, RN, has always carried a passion for the nursing profession. She credits her experiences growing up in a military family as her inspiration for a career in the healthcare community. Lamar oversees an army of private duty care professionals who have been trained, oriented and tested under her careful supervision. Today, Right at Home of DC, an in-home care and assistance agency Lamar owns and runs, is flourishing with an ever-expanding roll of clients and care professionals.

Lamar earned a bachelor's in nursing in 2000 from Old Dominion University in Virginia before embarking on her career in healthcare.

Lamar founded the company after recognizing the need for an alternative for seniors who preferred to stay in the comfort of their own homes.
