He often says he has done just about every job there is in home care but still remembers his first home visit: “I was standing there in this little old lady's house and a feeling came over me that I had finally come home – I knew then and there this would be where I would spend the remainder of my professional life.” His faith and passion for home care has never wavered since. Lolley graduated cum laude from the Valdosta State University in 1992 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing.
