Home Office Team
Kathy Mitchell is Continuum’s Director of Nursing. Her most important responsibility is the oversight of the clinical operations of all of Continuum’s locations. She comes by this task naturally given her more than 25 years of nursing experience, more than 17 of which come from the NICU and pediatric home care. Kathy joined Continuum in the mid 1990’s after moving from New York. Kathy has a passion for staying current with information relevant to Continuum’s patient population. She is a constant source of insight and advocacy for parents. Her ability to effortlessly teach sophisticated nursing practice is uncanny which is why her leadership is so significant for Continuum’s nurses. Kathy’s daughters, Katie and Lauren, are her pride and joy!

Wendy received her degree in nursing from Anne Arundel Community College and her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Health Care Administration from Columbia Union College. Wendy founded the visit division of Continuum in 2006 and since that time it has grown to provide care for hundreds of patients throughout the regions we serve. In addition to managing this division, Wendy keeps her skills sharp by writing for professional journals and teaching new and evolving treatment protocols.

Joe Green is the President of the Continuum Group. His office is in our McLean, Virginia headquarters, although he can often be found visiting our various branch offices throughout the country.

Since that time, Joe has owned and managed a national healthcare staffing agency, worked as Director of Business Development for an IT services company and served as Vice President for a multi-state mental health services provider among other, mostly healthcare related positions. Joe came to Continuum through a personal connection with the family of one of the children the company had cared for over the previous 10 years. Coming from this perspective, he considers his role at Continuum as much more than a job, and in addition to his wife and three children – Jay, Larkin and Emma – he is most proud to be part of the Continuum family.
