Our Health Magazine recently featured Michelle Narramore, Administrator of Warm Hearth at Home (WH@H), as a leader in local health care. WH@H offers home health and home care services throughout the New River Valley. Michelle is an emerging leader who stands out in her commitment and contributions to the health care field and the greater community, and in her leadership, professional organization memberships and volunteer work.
Narramore is responsible for more than 50 employees and provides vital care and services to seniors in their homes throughout the New River Valley. She ensures all clients under the agency’s care receive the services they need and that all procedures are followed, including staff supervision and evaluation. Narramore was recently asked to join U.S. Representative Morgan Griffith’s (VA) Alzheimer’s Advocacy Team and has visited with the state’s other Congressional leaders. Narramore considers volunteer activity vital. She is involved in several charitable endeavors including the Salvation Army, the Memory Walk to raise money for Alzheimer’s disease, and the Color Run which raises money for several charities. She volunteers at the local farmer’s market, helps The Warm Hearth Foundation deliver food to low-income seniors at the Village, and rescues senior dogs. In addition, she recently joined Girls on the Run, providing them with transportation, gear and training.
“I was elated to learn that I had been selected for the award by Our Health Magazine! What made it even better was that I was recommended by my peers at Warm Hearth. It is lovely to be recognized and appreciated by your own company,” Narramore said.
Narramore is from Detroit, Michigan and has two degrees from Radford University: a B.A. in History and a B.A. in Religious Studies. She lives in Blacksburg with her husband, two cats and a dog. She is an avid gardener and recently became a yoga instructor. Narramore has worked at Warm Hearth Village for three years.
