Natalie Valdes, Founder and CEO of MJNK HCHR Consulting, a company that provides innovative solutions and strategic guidance to home care agencies. Drawing on her experience as a staffing coordinator and independent contractor, Natalie identified the specific needs of home care agencies and developed a range of services to address them, including HR support, staff training, compliance management, and operational streamlining.
Natalie’s journey in the home care industry began in an unexpected way. While studying pre-law in college, she came across a job ad for a scheduling coordinator position at a local home care agency. Despite knowing little about the industry, she took a chance and applied for the position. To her surprise, she quickly fell in love with the work.
As a staffing coordinator, Natalie gained firsthand experience in the complexities and challenges of scheduling in the home care industry. She witnessed the critical role that caregivers play in providing compassionate, high-quality care to patients and developed a deep respect for the work they do. Her interest in human resources grew, and she saw the importance of effective management and employee engagement in ensuring the success of home care agencies.
Over time, Natalie became increasingly dedicated to making a difference in the industry. She founded two companies, her own home care agency, and a consulting company, to help other agency owners with their scheduling, recruiting, HR, management, and marketing needs. Today, she is a respected leader in the home care industry, recognized for her expertise, dedication, and commitment to excellence.

Inclusivity Through Overcoming Challenges
As a single mother in the home care industry, Natalie encountered multiple challenges in balancing her parental responsibilities with her role as a business owner. Being a Hispanic woman in a predominantly male-dominated field also presented hurdles, requiring her to overcome obstacles to earn respect and establish credibility.
However, these experiences have shaped Natalie’s leadership style, which is focused on being compassionate, patient, and understanding toward the needs of her clients and employees. She believes in creating a culture of inclusivity and collaboration within her business, where everyone feels valued and heard.
As a working mother, Natalie understands the challenges of balancing personal and professional responsibilities. She advises other working parents striving for success in their careers to prioritize self-care and set realistic goals. It’s important to communicate needs and limitations with employers and colleagues to create more accommodating work environments that benefit both the employee and the company.
In Natalie’s words, “Finding balance as a working parent requires a lot of organization and planning, but it’s important to remember to be kind to yourself and set priorities. Communicate your needs and limitations, and surround yourself with a support system. With determination and support, it’s possible to succeed both professionally and personally.”
Through their innovative solutions and strategic guidance, MJNK HCHR Consulting leads the home care industry to help agencies manage their operations and deliver high-quality care. Natalie is committed to going above and beyond for her client’s success.
