Sequoia Home Health

Why Kris Opened Sequoia

Kris Amorino has been a registered nurse since 1980, with experience spanning neonatal, pediatric, and adult ICU. In the 1990's, Kris owned an RCFE board & care home while operating home health agencies locally, both in supervisory and administrative roles.

Kris felt her patients deserved a higher standard of care than what she was providing at the companies she worked for, so, along with Gary Becker, she opened Sequoia Home Health and Companion Care in 2010. As both owner and operator, Kris has the passion and oversight needed to ensure Sequoia provides nothing less than the best in care for her patients and clients.

The Sequoia staff is treated like family. Maty Tucker and Wendy Christensen have been with Kris from the inception of Sequoia Home Health & Companion Care, and several other team members and clinicians have known and followed Kris for years.

Phrases like, "I couldn't have done it without you," "you allowed mom to stay at home when the alternative was a nursing home," or "thanks to your caring staff, I was able to remain at home safely" are commonly heard words of praise to the staff at Sequoia Home Health & Companion Care. We treat families as if they were our own.

Meet Our Amazing Team

Kris has a sterling reputation within the valley- she has clinicians and administrative staff alike who have followed her from company to company because of her style and work ethic. Her home health experience in case management and administrative roles spans 30 years, and in 2010, Kris opened her own companies, Sequoia Home Health & Sequoia Companion Care. Kris wholeheartedly believes that care and compassion cannot be compromised, and it shows in every aspect of Sequoia.

Kristin Amorino- Owner/Administrator, RN

I began my career with Kris as the manager of Sequoia Companion Care when she opened her doors in 2010. My background lies in education, where I was the administrator for a preschool. That experience serves me well, as I help keep our personal care attendants apprised of ways to help care for our clients, which can include children. Now, as Regional Manager overseeing both the Clovis and Sonora offices, I keep Sequoia Companion Care within compliance. It’s my personal duty to go above and beyond ensuring that my caregivers provide nothing but quality care and compassion to our clients. In my spare time, my family is involved heavily in basketball.

Maty Tucker- Regional Manager, Companion Care

I work almost exclusively with the doctors, their orders and paperwork to ensure our patients are in compliance and the doctors are following through appropriately. I like music and film (especially indies) and dream of traveling the world. I am currently planning a trip to Chicago with my son, where I will consume as much AUTHENTIC CHICAGO STYLE DEEP DISH PIZZA as possible!

Gary has decades of business experience in various arenas, specializing as a highly successful cattleman. He enjoys traveling from Clovis to Colorado on a weekly basis and keeping the financial side of Sequoia Home Health and Companion Care running smoothly.

Gary Becker- Owner

I am responsible for the admission and registration of incoming patients, and I make sure that all required patient information is received and processed. I like everything about Sequoia. Kris is an excellent boss, and I love how well everyone works together. I’m a mountain girl at heart, and I enjoy reading, fishing and just being outdoors.
