Mary Jo Dietrich, RN-BSN – Chief Executive Officer
Mary Jo is the founder of Caregogi and advocate for seniors in the Pittsburgh area.
Mary Jo began her life of compassion after caring for her grandfather when she was young. Her grandfather’s struggle inspired her to become a nurse to care for people like him. After graduating from St. Margaret’s Nursing school, she served as a cardiac nurse at UPMC Shadyside for 8 years.
Realizing there was a great need in Pittsburgh for senior care she decided to open a senior home care agency, At Home Senior Services, with her husband, David Dietrich. Since 2007 they have helped over 600 families remain in their homes as they age.
Now Mary Jo brings her compassion and knowledge of senior care to Caregogi. She has worked with the incredible software engineers at Savvior to infuse her knowledge of senior care into the algorithm of Caregogi. She knows that there are many people out there who are just like her Pappap, and she wants to do all that she can to serve them.
