Bobby Lolley, RN
Bobby Lolley is HCAF’s Executive Director. He has worked in the home care industry for over 30 years. His home care experience ranges from being a per diem staff nurse providing care to patients in a small rural community to serving as a regional director for a large national chain.
He often says he has held nearly every job within the home care sector, but he still vividly recalls 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 that this would be where I would spend the remainder of my professional life." His faith and passion for home care have remained unwavering. Bobby graduated cum laude from Valdosta State University in 1992 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

All these roles have given her deep abiding respect and admiration for the good that home care providers can achieve.
