About the Transparent Caregiving Strategies (TCS)
Kathryn Floyd is the Founder and CEO of Transparent Caregiving Strategies. She is a Certified Senior Advisor, Certified Caregiving Consultant and Educator. She has over 25 years of experience in healthcare administration and information technology.
When Kathryn became a caregiver to her elderly parents it was a very challenging, second job. Almost exactly a year after her father passed away from cancer, her mother had a stroke. While trying to maintain flexible IT work, Kathryn realized there are many other professionals faced the same challenges as she did. Her mission is to help other caregivers strategically navigate the paths of being a “good caregiver” and “taking care of themselves” by providing education and helpful resources.
Her Bachelor of Science degree in Healthcare Administration gave her the opportunity to work at large healthcare organizations, such as: MedPartners; McKesson; University of Alabama Birmingham; Hospital Corporations of America (HCA), and Vanderbilt University Medical Center where her niche was strategy and problem resolution. As a result, Kathryn has the unique ability to resolve patient billing issues between providers and insurance companies; and creating a system by organizing patient information to optimize caregivers’ time to provide free time for themselves.
Over a decade, Kathryn has lived the life of a caregiver while taking care of her parents. Her caregiving has been both long-distance and 24/7 at home with her family so she understands the challenges a caregiver can face and is here to serve others.
Kathryn is active in the church and has served in her community as a YMCA board member and was active with Big Brothers and Big Sisters. She has been a mentor, trainer and speaker. She is a current member of the Donelson/Hermitage Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Donelson Hermitage (now known as L’Evate), and Shoals Chamber of Commerce.
