Amy Winburn, MSN, RN, has been a Springfield area resident since 1985. She received her nursing degree from Cox College. She worked for Cox Hospital as a medical-surgical nurse and received her BSN from Missouri State University. Amy went on to earn a Master's in Nursing from Vanderbilt University.
Amy joined Compassus in 2004 and has held several positions of leadership, including Regional Clinical Director and now Executive Director of the Springfield and Osceola programs. She and Rick, her husband of 19 years, have two children, Emma and Eva.
Managing Clinical Director
I joined the Compassus team in April 1995 as a hospice aide and fell in love with the positive impact we bring to the lives of patients and families. Over the years I have held several positions within our company, including Clinical Nursing Assistant, Team Coordinator, RN case manager, Director of Clinical Services, and Regional Clinical Director. I currently serve as the Managing Clinical Director for locations in Springfield and Osceola, Massachusetts.
I obtained my Associate Nursing degree at SBU/St Johns school of Nursing and live in the Springfield area with my husband Mike. We have three children Tyler, Dusty and Macey.
Director of Sales
Janet Weber joined Compassus in 2012, bringing with her a service mindset shown through her years and commitment to serving our community. Whether it’s serving as the Chair for the Go Red for Women, Board Memberships: Leadership Springfield, Greene County History Museum, Springfield Catholic and Public Schools, Team Coordinator for Relay for Life and chief cookie baker for church bake sales, Janet enjoys giving her time and talents to our community.
Janet and her husband, Gary, a pharmacist with Wal-Mart, have been married for 25 years and have two son’s: Blake attending Mizzou and Garrett attending Springfield Catholic. The Weber family enjoys the outdoors and spending time with friends.
Director Of Clinical Services
I started my hospice career in 1995 as a QI nurse and transitioned to hospice case manager. I then transferred to clinical education after about seven years and also worked at the regional level with our corporate education department. My position as a Director of Clinical Services over the past 10 years is where I fell in love with hospice and caring for the terminally ill. This is the most rewarding job I have ever had.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a BS in Psychology from NW Missouri State University and a MS in Counseling from SW Missouri State University. I've lived in the Springfield area for 35 years.
I started my hospice career with Hospice of SW Missouri, now known as Compassus, in 1989. I love my current role as Bereavement Coordinator. I am currently a Compassus volunteer and held a position as Counselor for many years. Prior to joining Compassus, I was in private practice and the Director of Admissions at a small hospital.
My wife, Jamie, has been an elementary school teacher for more than 25 years, helping children form a good foundation for future success. We're proud parents of two adult children, Karson, 22, and Kalli, 20. In my spare time I'm a world class powerlifter and advocate for investing in yourself for mental and physical health and longevity. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to meet, serve, and work with the people I do on a daily basis.
My hospice experience dates back to 1992 and I’ve worn many hats during my career. Prior to my current role as Bereavement Coordinator for Compassus, I was an Administrative Assistant, Volunteer Support Coordinator, Payroll Assistant, Community Services Coordinator and a Hospice Services Consultant. Before starting my hospice career, I was a stay-at-home mom.
My years of experience in the non-profit world were ideal preparation for my current position with Compassus. I started in non-profits as an Americorps member at the Illinois version of what's known as Child Care Aware in Missouri. Most recently, I was Development Manager at The ALS Association. Prior to that, I worked five years with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, first in patient services and then as Special Events Manager. Each position taught me about service. But it was my experience as a homemaker with a home health agency where I learn first-hand about the unique needs of those in hospice and palliative care.
I'm originally from Illinois, but consider myself a Springfield local after calling it home for nine years. My family and three children, Drew, 19, Levi, 13 and Sophia, 10, are the loves of my life. My children are funny, smart, inquisitive, full of ideas and just as ornery as they are cute! My favorite hobby is finding vintage and antique items to sell in my booth at the Vintage Peddler here in Springfield. I find it so exciting to discover new uses for old things.
Listening to a hospice patient's story or reading a passage of their favorite book can enrich the life of a hospice patient. Whether you volunteer behind the scenes at a local office or one-on-with families, you'll be joining fellow volunteers who are helping others navigate life's closing chapters.
