About Our Staff
Austin Peay VII – Owner
Austin was born in Clarksville, Tennessee. Prior to forming Home Care Assistance Clarksville, Austin graduated magna cum laude from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Political Science. He went on to obtain his law degree from the University of Tennessee in 1993 and has practiced in the areas of real estate, probate and general business law. He is a member of the Montgomery County (Tennessee) and Tennessee Bar Associations. He is also a member of the Golden Key National Honor Society, Phi Beta Kappa, and Kiwanis Club.
Austin began exploring the idea of opening a home care services company after having to seek help for several of his own family members. The HCA franchise was appealing because its focus is to provide a balanced and caring service to our aging seniors who want to remain in their homes but need extra assistance to make it a reality. After having difficulty finding qualified caregivers, Austin formed HCA Clarksville in early 2017 to care for the needs of the area’s aging population.
Debbie Nunn – Client Care Manager
Debbie was born in Dayton, Ohio but moved to the middle Tennessee/western Kentucky area as a child. She earned an associates degree in nursing from Hopkinsville Community College. Following college, Debbie had a 33 year career with Jennie Stewart Medical Center where she worked in nursing as well as management. Debbie has always had an interest in senior care. Growing up, her family owned several senior care facilities where she would often volunteer as well as work.
During her long career in the medical field, Debbie saw many seniors who could have benefited from remaining at home with the assistance of a qualified and compassionate caregiver. Debbie’s observation led her to Home Care Assistance Clarksville where she is able to make a difference in the lives of seniors. She believes HCA’s “Balanced Care Method” is the key to keeping seniors in the comforts of their own homes while at the same time rendering excellent, professional care.
Debbie has been married for 18 years and has four children. When not in the office helping seniors, you can find Debbie cooking, watching soccer games or attending dance recitals.
Deanna Minton – Employee Care Manager
Deanna is excited to be with Home Care Assistance Clarksville. She has worked with HCA owner, Austin Peay, for decades as his assistant and practice manager. Deanna’s organizational and communication skills coupled with her understanding of personalities and emotions, enable her to make Caregiver/Client matches that last.
When Deanna is not in the office helping match seniors to caregivers, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two grown children.
