Chad Fisher

Director

Chad Fisher, a native Floridian, knows what service looks like. He joined the Army in 1993 where he trained to be an M1A1 tank driver and later drove the 1st tank deployed to Somalia, Africa after the infamous Blackhawk helicopter crash.

Chad completed his duties as a decorated soldier, moved home to Florida, and opened a business to pursue his passion for classic car restoration. During this time Chad’s grandfather, with whom he was very close, passed away. This had a huge impact on him and ignited his desire to engage with our senior population, many of whom had been purchasers of his lovingly restored cars. As Chad began to connect with the stories of seniors in our community, his desire to serve those individuals grew until he joined his family in founding Avail Home Care.

Chad and his wife Ashlie live in Clearwater with their 2 young boys. Chad still enjoys working with cars as well as spending time with his family.

JESSE MALIN

Director
jesse@availhomecare.com

Jesse was immersed in the world of senior care from a young age.  Shortly after graduation from high school, Jesse’s mother was suffering from the effects of a rare neurological disorder.  Jesse made it his personal mission to understand all the resources available to his mom and figure out how to provide the best quality of care.

Jesse attended Cornell University as an undergrad and decided to continue his education at the University of Tampa.  Before graduating with a Masters in Entrepreneurship, Jesse met the team at Avail and immediately was drawn to their passion for senior living.  Jesse joined Avail and hopes to expand their reach and services so as many seniors as possible can benefit from his experience.

Jesse is married to his wife Alyssa Malin who is a Family Nurse Practitioner. They are expecting their first child in the summer of 2019.

Rachel Fisher

President
rfisher@availhomecare.com

Rachel Fisher is a serial entrepreneur and business woman. Although her undergraduate training was in the biological sciences, Rachel has spent the better part of her career running tech companies serving the helping professions. She co-founded, built, and sold an online learning company that provided continuing education and training to national non-profit organizations and government agencies, as well as hundreds of K12 public school districts.

In addition to her personal business experience, she’s also a Wharton MBA who is looking forward to applying the best parts of business practice to build a company that does well by doing good.

Her interest in serving the senior space in particular came as she grew to learn more about the overwhelming need. With the coming tidal wave of the Baby Boomers this space is going to need the kind of creative, committed, and compassionate leaders who can drive that “win-win” bottom line thinking and strategy to ensure that all of our seniors are properly cared for as they age.
