As a Registered Nurse with over 20 years in the industry, and joint owner of Secure Aging, Jana serves as Senior Care Manager/Healthcare Advocate with aspirations to pioneer the individual health care management and senior advocacy industry.
Ever since she can remember, Jana Hameed has believed in the necessity of health advocacy and education. This passion led to her early career as a CNA at The Masonic Homes in Central Pennsylvania, where she developed a love for patient care and the aging population. Health advocacy and patient care became an integral drive toward obtaining her first baccalaureate degree in Health Science at Lock Haven University, Lock Haven, Pennsylvania. This was followed by a bachelor’s degree in Nursing at Adelphi University in Garden City, New York.
Jana started her career as an RN in the greater New York City area at North Shore Manhasset Hospital. Upon moving to Florida in 2007, Jana has worked as a Medical-Surgical RN at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. She later joined Tidewell, as a hospice nurse which ignited her passion for palliative and end of life care. For the past five years she has worked as a home health nurse, caring for patients within many assisted living facilities across the Sarasota and Venice areas.
