Coastal Hospice has welcomed two new Provider Relations Associates as members of their outreach team. Provider Relations Associates go out into the four Lower Shore counties that Coastal Hospice serves to provide physicians and heath care facilities with the proper tools to give them a full understanding of hospice and the services the non-profit provides.
Frankie Knight grew up in Ocean City and attended Wor-Wic Community College and Towson University. She has volunteered for the National Alliance of Mental Illness, Susan G. Komen and CASA. After a cancer diagnosis, she started a women’s peer support group at TU. Knight is dedicated to working in the non-profit world.
Caroline Hutchison grew up in Salisbury and attended Bridgewater College in Virginia. Previously, she interned at Coastal Hospice in Provider Relations during the fall and spring of 2014/2015. Hutchison’s goal is to extend a helping hand to her neighbors and have a positive impact on her community.
