Mary Jo Dietrich
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, who she affectionately called “Pappap”, when she was young. Her Pappap’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.
David is a dedicated man who believes strongly in the betterment of the lives of seniors in America.
David is incredibly accomplished with a BSBA in Management from Robert Morris University, an MBA in international business from Point Park University, and a PhD in international business from Berne University. David has spent over 25 years working with small to medium sized businesses assisting them with strategic planning, business succession planning, and e-commerce.
David has spent the past 7 years managing the home care agency he founded with his wife, At Home Senior Services. His work took a personal turn when he was required to help his own mother as she navigated the aging process. After this challenging personal journey, he felt even more of an affinity for the families that he helps on a daily basis.
David does all that he can to utilize his talents to assist seniors in the area. He works through several organizations to give aid to seniors in need, including The National Aging in Place Council, The Twilight Wish Foundation, and The Veteran’s Breakfast Club. David brings all of his experience and passion to Caregogi. He knows that with his skill he will be able to help people like him who are coping with caring for their aging parents.

I build things that help people – it’s that simple and that complex.
—- Well, it’s really not complex at all.
I helped change the world of home healthcare in America.
In 2002, I started medSage Technologies on the premise that homecare providers needed help better managing their patients living at home. From that humble goal, the medSage team changed homecare in the US. Patients became more compliant to their doctor’s therapy (60% to 84% therapy compliance), our customers’ revenue doubled and the quality of care improved. Today, our solution is the standard of care.
I help brilliant and young budding entrepreneurs be successful.
As associate professor of entrepreneurship at Carnegie Mellon University, I work with the best of the best. By helping these exceptional students start new companies, I have the privilege to help them build the companies that will generate tomorrow’s wealth, quality of life, safety, prosperity and more.
I help CEOs work ON their business – not IN their business!
I run a private advisory board for CEOs, business owners & executives to help them step out of the trees and see the forest. One can only understand how lonely it feels to be the leader of an organization after having experienced it. As a CEO myself, there were many times that I would have given anything to have an advisor and peer, who I trusted, to confidentially challenge my decisions (or validate them). Imagine having 15 peers, all talented CEOs, who only have your interest at heart! No hidden agendas or conflicts of interest, and diverse experiences to draw from. The power of the group helps our member CEOs manage strategic issues with clarity and confidence.
It’s magic…and it’s powerful!
