Joy Kanagy, RN, BSN, CHPN

Graduated from Eastern Mennonite University

Certified in Hospice and Palliative Care

With previous employment in critical care nursing, nursing education and as a former community based hospice nurse, I bring experience and knowledge to the home health client. Nursing has been my lifelong passion.  I serve with excellence and compassion.






Mary Jo Bowman, Hospice Chaplain and Bereavement Coordinator

Since graduating from Eastern Mennonite Seminary, I have worked as a chaplain resident at UVA Medical Center and as hospice chaplain in Harlan, Kentucky and with Augusta Health.  I have also been a chaplain volunteer at local retirement communities and worked with a local mental health agency.  I bring a holistic perspective to hospice since I am also a nurse, massage therapist and spiritual director.  It is an honor and privilege to provide spiritual support to our patients and their loved ones.



Dr. Arlene McCain, MD,

Hospice Medical Director

I am a heart-centered family doctor who values the sacred patient-physician relationship.  I am honored to participate in the lives of individuals and their families from birth through natural death.  I graduated from Georgetown University with a major in biology and a minor in theology.  Then, I trained at Eastern Virginia Medical School, followed by EVMS-Portsmouth Family Medicine Residency, where I also served as Chief Resident.  I am the senior physician at Carilion-Bridgewater Family Medicine, and mentor future healthcare providers.  Recently, I earned certification in Integrative Therapies and Healing Practices - Health Coaching Track, through the University of Minnesota and am one of the first nationally board certified health coaches in the nation.  I am centered and grounded in my faith and the abundant love of my family.  I am grateful for the opportunity to journey with this incredible team and all those we serve at First Choice Hospice.


Anna Rhinehart, Hospice Aide

I have been a CNA for over 30 years.  My experience has been broad as I have worked in hospitals and in private homes.  I have also worked as a home health CNA for over 8 years.  I have a passion for taking care of the elderly population and have enjoyed every minute of it.  I live in Stanley and have three children and three grandchildren.  I enjoy cooking and watching my grandson play sports.




Wanda Rexrode, RN

I moved to Virginia 15 years ago from West Virginia.  My journey began for my life-long dream of becoming a nurse!  I first graduated as an LPN, then later as an RN.  I have gained experience at various jobs including Long Term Care, Med-Surg, Oncology and Hospice.  I am so happy to be with an agency that values caring for patients and keeping them in the comfort and safety of their own homes.

My blessings of a supportive husband, 3 children and their families keep me grounded, refreshed and desiring to pass on nurturing to others.
