Client Coordination Manager

Danielle Ackerly

In my role as Client Coordination Manager, it is my goal to provide superior client experiences from start to finish. I derive satisfaction knowing that the client caregiver match I have made meets the particular needs of each client – that I have made a difference in their lives.

Talent Acquisition Manager

Melanie DeVilliers

As the Talent Acquisition Manager for Connecticut and Westchester County, my role is to recruit and hire the best of the best caregivers to assist our clients. Having over 15 years of experience in healthcare recruitment and working with others, I very much enjoy getting to know candidates who love what they do and I get very excited to introduce them to our Privatus team. In my spare time I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family.

Client Services Manager

Pat Kenny

As a Client Services Manager, I meet with potential clients and their families, getting to know what healthcare challenges they are facing, then help them to design a plan that is suited to their unique situation and preferences.

My experience working with older adults is extensive, spanning over 30 years. After receiving a Bachelor of Science Degree in Gerontology I worked for many years in Social Services in Skilled Nursing Facilities, Assisted Living Communities, as well as for private care providers.
It is my great pleasure to work with Privatus in a role which allows me to share my knowledge of the health care system and available resources. Through experiencing the many different ways our dedicated team has assisted clients in challenging to near hopeless situations, I have a true passion for what’s possible.

Client Services Coordinator

John Palma

As Client Services Coordinator, it is my duty to ensure that our caregivers provide the highest quality of service possible for all of our clients throughout Westchester County, NY and Fairfield County, CT.  Every day, I communicate with our caregivers to make sure they have all the details necessary to provide superior service.  I come to Privatus with a Bachelor of Science in Health Services Administration from St. John’s University, and I am passionate about healthcare and providing assistance to those in need.

Supervisor of Client Services

Tanya Rama, RN

As a Supervisor of Client Services I oversee all aspects of the services provided to clients. Drawing from my nursing experience, I enjoy being an educational resource to  families, providing guidance regarding treatment plans, medications, and available options.

It is a pleasure to work for a company that looks at the whole person, and all the details that are important to them. While we are helping people that have health issues, we know that very often it may be assisting with a beloved pet or facilitating a shopping excursion that makes all the difference. I am grateful to work with a company that supports this holistic approach and allows me to be creative with each individual family.

Supervisor of Client Services

Marjorie Spaziante, RN

In my role as Supervisor of Client Services, I strive to alleviate the stress families face during times of illness or changes in a family member’s independence.  Having spent the greater part of my career in home care, and having been on the side of a loved one receiving care, I can say that being on the Privatus team is a breath of fresh air.  It is wonderful to work for a company that provides individualized care that traditional Medicare-based home care is often unable to deliver.  At Privatus, we value a comprehensive approach to working with clients and their families to ensure they receive the best care possible.  As a lifelong resident of Westchester County, this is where I raised my two grown children.  In my spare time I enjoy cooking, going to the gym, and caring for my pets.

Executive Director

Carla Solimene, MHRM, JD

As the Executive Director of the Greenwich and Westchester offices, I oversee the day to day operations in Fairfield County, CT and Westchester County, NY.  I have a Juris Doctor degree along with Master’s Degrees in both Education and Human Resource Management.  I came to Privatus Care Solutions with over 25 years in the home care field including certified, licensed, managed care and infusion settings.  My passion is people.  Whether I am working with our clients, our devoted caregivers, or the office team that makes everything look effortless, I have a special interest in each and every person.  Together, I believe we make a difference that matters
