Tina witnessed firsthand the incredible care that her godmother received and the support and comfort that her godfather and other family members experienced.  She instantly felt a deep connection with this amazing type of healthcare.

Tina worked with Four Seasons for over nine years and served as Vice President of Patient Access and Sustainable Resources where she led the departments of philanthropy, marketing, volunteers, community relations, intake and referrals.  While at Four Seasons Tina conducted the largest (at that time) Capital Campaign in Henderson County of $5.2 million; directed Four Seasons’ rebranding campaign; led the admissions team to achieve an 80% death service ratio; and conceptualized, designed and implemented the first Hospice Home Store which produced positive revenue the first year.

In 2013, Tina left Four Seasons to serve as the President and CEO of the United Way of the Lowcountry serving Beaufort and Jasper Counties in South Carolina.  She served in this role for over 5 years.  Under Tina’s leadership the agency successfully implemented a complete shift in strategic direction from a “traditional” United Way approach of allocating funds to one with a particular emphasis on increasing its capacity to drive measurable change in our two-county region and raised in excess of $12,500,000 in annual campaign dollars.  - Read More

Annette Kiser
Chief Compliance Officer, Compliance

Annette Kiser, MSN, RN, NE-BC, is the Chief Compliance Officer for Teleios Collaborative Network. Equipped with more than 32 years of health care experience, she is widely regarded as a regulatory and compliance expert in the hospice industry.

After volunteering as a nurse for a community-based, not-for-profit hospice in 1986, Annette quickly realized that hospice was her passion and, within a year, began working as a staff nurse. She enjoyed helping patients and families meet their symptom management needs and carve out quality time with their loved ones. Working in a small agency, Annette wore many hats and was deeply involved in quality and compliance.

In 2000, she took a position with another community-based hospice and guided the agency through the accreditation process with The Joint Commission. At this point, Annette returned to the patient care side of hospice and served as the Director of Nursing for five years. Her strong interest in quality and compliance led her to become the Director of Organizational Integrity.

In 2010, Annette decided to lend her expertise to The Carolinas Center, the hospice and palliative care association supporting the combined service area of North and South Carolina. Over the next 6½ years, she provided technical assistance and education to hospices – both non-profit and for-profit – throughout the two states.

When Teleios Collaborative Network was formed, Annette was recruited as the Chief Compliance Officer, charged with providing compliance oversight to multiple hospices. In addition to helping these organizations implement best practices, Annette consults with other providers and industry leaders as an expert on hospice regulations and related processes.  READ MORE
