Dr. Nancy Oppenheimer-Marks
As an associate professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, Dr. Nancy Oppenheimer-Marks was conducting research in rheumatic disease in the Department of Internal Medicine when she chose a new career path.
"Following the death of my parents and after serious consideration, I decided to make it my priority to help provide quality care and compassion to our senior population", said Nancy. She found that the mission of Home Instead Senior Care was much like her own and opened the Dallas franchise in 1999.
"The rewards are immeasurable", she said. "I get personal pleasure from helping clients and their families, and from employing great people."
She earned her PhD at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Dallas, now known as the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. Nancy served on the board of directors for Friends of Senior Affairs and is a member of the Texas chapter of the Home Care Association of America.
Nancy's son is a professional pilot and her husband of over 40 years is a retired neurophysiologist who conducted research at the VA Medical Center in Dallas. She loves spending time with her family and friends, and likes to knit and fuse glass. She also enjoys the company of her dogs, Archie and Edith.
