The Janis Siegle Award



Meet Tecla Eriyo (pictured with Janis Siegle, along with Home Helpers of Columbus’ Director of Client Services Tracy Rieser and Owner Jason Janoski). Tecla is attending the American Institute of Alternative Medicine and will graduate in July 2022 with a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) degree. She plans to continue her schooling with the goal of becoming a Registered Nurse (RN) and working as an Obstetric Nurse in Labor and Delivery.

Since joining us in January 2020, Tecla has exhibited exceptional skill, professionalism and energy, along with selfless support for her teammates and every client she has served. We especially appreciate her ability to make clients feel comfortable with the caregiving process and her ability to lead by example.

Thank you, Tecla, and congratulations!

Janis Siegle, RN, BSN, CRRN (pictured to the right) is a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Nursing. Janis’ career in Columbus spanned 61 years and included a diverse history of settings and patient populations.

Her early years were spent in hospital emergency rooms, orthopedics and acute care. After this early portion of her career, Janis stepped away from nursing to raise seven children. She and her husband Bill experienced all the challenges and joy that come with having seven children involved in school, athletics, extracurricular activities and community service--and they never shied away from any of it. Janis and Bill were leaders in their neighborhood, their church and their community.

After raising her children, Janis returned to her love of nursing and served in several leadership roles including: Supervisor for the Heinzerling Foundation (residential care and support for children and adults with severe or profound developmental disabilities), Director of Nursing at Wesley Glen Retirement Community, and Administrator at Advantage Home Health Care. Her final professional years were spent in administration, case management and cancer research.

Janis’ career embodies Home Helpers’ mission of making life easier for others by delivering exceptional care. Her love of work and family and her ability to balance both provides a great example for our Caregivers to follow.

We are proud to honor our Caregivers with the Janis Siegle Award each year. Like Janis, the Award recipients exhibit professional excellence, an eagerness to serve and an unwavering commitment to their teammates and clients.
