I have a decade of experience working within the Health Maintenance field for the Pacific Northwest region. In this time, I’ve provided quality customer service for my patients, while focusing on their needs as clients. Working within for seniors and disabled individuals has been the most rewarding experience of my life. More personally I hail from Paris, France, where I learned to appreciate the diversity of people. This has also granted me the unique privilege to have staffed around the world. I'm also the proud father of four and am an avid dog lover. While working in Health Maintenance, I’ve made many connections with local businesses. These include but aren’t limited to local healthcare facilities and hospitals, Veterans Office, Aloha Business Association, Washington County, Yamhill County, and Marion County. These connections have expanded my reach within the community, allowing me to provide the care individuals need. If I had to say, my staff are why people choose Atlantis Caregiving. We have a unique matching process for both clients and caregivers to ensure satisfaction. Our staff is reliable, efficient, and has the caregiver spirit! I couldn’t be prouder of my employees. We are a family owned and operated business.
In conclusion, the goal of Atlantis Caregiving is to help the community one individual at a time.
Chief Executive Officer
Kimerie Larmanger, MBA
I started my career back at Tigard High School when I worked in the community at St Vincent’s for two years in the Infant Nursery and Tigard Nursing Home. I worked 20 years for Kaiser Permanente in various positions to include Materials Coordinator, Hospice Coordinator, Administrative Assistant, Receptionist, Unit Secretary, Scheduler, Staffing, Payroll, Patient Care Manager. I went on to complete my Bachelors in Business Administration, Masters in Healthcare Administration and Law School. I worked two companies during this time in caregiving and that is where I found the enjoyment of working with people that are disabled or seniors bringing joy to their lives. My husband and I married in 2005 and enjoy spending time at the coast, or trips to California, New York. I have two beautiful children I spend time with ranging from 11 years to 18 years. Helping individuals in the community is rewarding for any individual, the best are the story tellers describing times from the past, truly the greatest moments of time.
Director of Nursing
Vikki Blanchard, RN
I was born in Portland, Oregon and I have lived in Oregon my whole life. My Career in Healthcare began at the age of 15 with my first job. I started as a Certified Nursing Assistant in Long Term Care while working my way through school. Through school I progressed from a Certified Nursing Assistant to a Licensed Practical Nurse, then to a Registered Nurse. In 1980 I left Long Term Care to work at OHSU. Working on 9C I supported Neurology, Neurosurgery, Ophthalmology, Trauma, and ENT. I was very proficient at vent weaning and getting patients back to normalcy. I rejoice in positive outcomes and seeing patients regain their health. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren and riding my Mustang Horses.
Rhyzelle Perrenoud, RN
I recently moved to Oregon from California in March of 2022. I got my BSN from West Coast University and have been a nurse for 2 years. I started taking care of my mother who had multiple illnesses when I was 15 which inspired me to become a nurse. I love taking care of people and being able to help them reach their health goals. I can’t wait to learn and experience more of what healthcare has to offer. So I am excited that Atlantis has chosen to take me in to their amazing and inspiring team so that I can continue to grow in this profession.

I believe in providing the highest level of skilled and compassionate care while also maintaining patient dignity. I graduated from Walla Walla University with a BSN and received my MPH from Loma Linda University. I have worked in a wide variety of healthcare settings and enjoy the relationships I've developed over the years with colleagues and patients.

I started in the Care Field a little over 8 1/2 years ago. I worked in a Care Facility for 7 1/2 years. I enjoy helping others making people smile and just simply making a difference in someone's life. I enjoy being a Caregiver. Working with Atlantis Caregiving and being a part of ARK Foundation has given me more knowledge about care and how to be a better Caregiver. I still have lots of room to grow and learn new things about both companies. I do enjoy helping the students and working with the Instructor David.
I cared for my father the last eight months of his life in Nevada before coming back to Beaverton. Before that I was an apartment Manager. I've always enjoyed caring for others and making them smile. I've been a Caregiver for Thirteen years and I enjoy working for Atlantis Caregiving. I was promoted to Administrative Assistant in 2023.

I love working with my family at Atlantis and spending time with them on my off time weather going to the beach, the movies, or out to dinner.
