Meet Our Team

I am Christine Friedberg and I am privileged to be the Director of the Griswold Home Care Office in Northern Virginia East. I live in Alexandria with my husband, Mike, our daughter and twin toddlers.

While growing up in the DC metro area, I was raised to believe in service. As a minister’s daughter, serving those in my community is thoroughly ingrained in my values. I was initially exposed to senior care and home care through my grandmother’s special caregiver – a woman she called her “Angel.” “Angel” was full of compassion and provided my grandmother with the care and companionship that my family could not provide long-distance.

As fate would have it, I was brought back to the idea of home care as a relationship manager with a franchise consulting and research company. I quickly realized that Griswold Home Care was an industry leader, and I made a career change because I wanted to help families like my own. My team and I can help your family whether you need a few hours of respite care or full-time live-in care.

With a background in hospice care, I learned firsthand the comfort and sense of peace people gain from being able to remain in their own homes. Sharing that experience with clients and families earlier in their lives is one of the major reasons I switched to working in home care.

Erin Corbett – Case Coordinator

e-corbettI joined Griswold as the Care Coordinator after finishing my MBA in healthcare services. Prior to working at Griswold, I acted as caretaker for my mother as she battled cancer. This experience left me with renewed enthusiasm and compassion to help individuals and their families navigate the process of securing and maintaining in-home care. I greatly look forward to helping you and your family receive the best possible care.

Connie Ryan – Manager of Caregiver Operations

connie-photo-for-websiteAs the Manager of Caregiver Operations, I have the opportunity to work with and meet so many fantastic and compassionate people. With a background of working with small businesses and non-profits, I have a passion for working with people who go above and beyond the usual 9 to 5 job and who enjoy working for something bigger than themselves. After experiencing my grandparents aging process, I discovered the power of assisting people in their homes and the benefits of in-home care. Now I get to be a more active part of that process for so many people and I am honored to be a part of the Griswold community.

Julia Wilson- Director of Nursing

RN, WILSON, JuliaAs the Director of Nursing, I am dedicated to ensuring your loved one and your family receive the best care from our team of exceptional care givers. I will be working with you to create your service plan as well as overseeing the care that our caregivers provide to you. I look forward to meeting and getting to know you and your family!

After taking time out of professional nursing to partner in my husband’s overseas career and raise our children, I am happy to be back and doing my favorite thing: learning your story, making a connection, and helping you work through the challenges of changing needs. A long-displaced Washington state native, I find my eyes instinctively scanning the horizon for snow-capped mountains. I enjoy bicycling, gardening, pottery, and am president of my neighborhood association.

I am privileged to be able to use my skills and experience to serve the Northern Virginia community and most importantly the wonderful clients of Griswold.

Kristen Banks- Office Support Specialist

Originally from the Hampton Roads area, I currently live in Alexandria with my husband of two years.  When I am not working with clients, caregivers and the staff at Griswold Home Care, I am crocheting, lifting weights, or reading a good book.
