MBED Class of 2020 - Priscilla Myles

CEO and founder of Myles Per Grace Home Care Providers, Priscilla Myles has been working in public health for most of her life.

Myles was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. She received her Master of Science in Public Health from Meharry Medical College in 2013 and a Bachelor of Arts in Biology from Fisk University in 2011, both located in Nashville, TN.

For six years, Myles worked as a Public Health Analyst for the Health Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. There, she managed federal grants and contracts, wrote high-level reports for Congress and the White House, managed tribal affairs for her bureau, and hosted numerous webinars for grantees.

Myles was eventually inspired to open an in-home health care agency due to her volunteer work at local hospitals, her time as a caregiver to her mother (who has Multiple Sclerosis), and her work providing respite care to neighbors throughout her childhood. Priscilla is very active in her church, where she teaches Sunday School and assists the Pastors with different initiatives. Ultimately, she desires to extend a helping hand to anyone in need by providing ethical and compassionate caregivers to families throughout Maryland.

Myles decided to take the Frederick County Minority Business Executive Development class to sharpen her business acumen and network with other small businesses.

When speaking to the importance of diversity, Myles states, “I define diversity as valuing the voices and experiences of individuals from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds than the majority. I believe diversity is essential to be a truly forward-thinking and innovative company.”

Myles is happily married to her husband Nicholas, going on five years this November, and they have a busy one-year-old, Josiah. To learn more about Priscilla Myles, visit: https://www.mylespergrace.com/
