Carrie Rater, RN

Director of Nursing Services

Carrie has been a registered nurse for almost 12 years with experience in long term care and ER. She has been with Gentle Shepherd Hospice for 4 years.

She has 4 children, ranging in age from 16 to 2, and is happily married to her husband Jeff who is a sergeant with the Lynchburg Police Department. She enjoys traveling and camping with her family and is an active member of Thomas Terrace Baptist Church.

She has been a Christian for most of her life, but never feels as fulfilled as she does when serving others.  Carrie embraces the opportunity to minister to someone in hospice care, and loves what she does.

We do too!
