Our Team

Erica Stephen

Executive Director

Erica Stephen grew up in Crown Point, Indiana and has a degree in Christian Business Management from Liberty University. Throughout her life and career path, God has used Erica to steward her gifts for the care of others. Erica wants to offer relief and support to caregivers and elderly neighbors in Tippecanoe County.
She understands the need for every person to use their God-given gifts for God’s work to flourish. There is no way we can do this alone. Erica’s aspiration is to be the hands and feet of Christ and to bring joy and love to the lives of others.

“As you walk into someone’s home and hear their stories and learn from them, it really is the person serving who receives the gift. The appreciation and joy of just a moment of being present with another person can mean so much, even though it is simple,” Erica shares.
Erica desires to use her experiences, management skills, and training to serve God and people as Executive Director for Caregiver Companion. She would love to meet you! She can best be reached at the office when you call (765) 423-1879 or by e-mail at director@caregivercompanion.org.


Caitlin Conrad

Associate Director

Caitlin Conrad is a Purdue University graduate with a degree in Human Services. After college, she worked for a campus ministry where she served college students and partnered with them in their faith. As her time ended in ministry, she felt called back into what she studied and remained passionate about: elder care. Caitlin has always had a heart for the elderly. Growing up down the street from her grandparents and completing several internships in elder care, she saw the sadness of isolation through the process of aging. Her hope is to raise others’ awareness that aging does not have to be isolating and hidden from our community but can happen within a group of caring individuals. Through Christ, we can joyfully walk through life alongside each other––no matter the age.
