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.
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.
Director of Clinical Services
I've been with Compassus since 1999 in roles including, Case Manager, Call Team Nurse, Admissions Coordinator, and Director of Clinical Services. I'm originally from Louisville, Nebraska. My family and I moved to Missouri in 1980 to be near relatives, as my mother was raised in the Norwood area. I married Art Simmoneau five years ago and we have six sons, nine grandchildren, and six dogs. In our spare time, you'll find us on the motorcycle discovering new foods to sample and scenery to take in.
Whether you serve behind the scenes at the office or one-on-with families, you'll be part of a volunteer team helping families navigate life's closing chapters.
