Executive Director of ChattanoogaSend Message
Regina Porterfield is a native of Memphis TN and she has dedicated the last 20 years of her life to the healthcare industry. In 1986 Regina’s first job was as a Nurse Assistant at Metro Community Care where she cared for people with mental illnesses; she knew then that her calling was to work in this community as she wanted to be that voice for those whom were unable to speak and advocate for themselves.
In 2007 Regina began her career with Maxim\CareFocus Inc., where she first worked as a Direct Support Staff in one of their Supportive Living Homes. A year later she was promoted to Team Leader and in 2009 she was offered the Program Director’s position in Nashville, TN which she excelled in for seven years. She was most recently promoted to Executive Director of our Chattanooga program in 2016.
Regina feels that she was not placed in this field to be perfect, but to merely make a difference…for the last 20 years she feels she has been privileged to serve some of the most beautiful people. Daily, she says they’ve made a difference in her life, teaching her to embrace life no matter what the circumstances. Regina’s goal is to continue to enrich the lives of the individuals of this great community; she does not know of another career she’d want.
