Theanna Zika @ Heavenly Helpers

Theanna Zika is the owner and President of the St. Louis, Missouri-based home care service Heavenly Helpers Senior Care. Starting with only $5,000 in capital, Ms. Zika has grown her business considerably, and she continues to experience impressive yearly growth. Theanna Zika had no background in the field when she started her home care service in 2004, but she ignored detractors; today, she has brought her business to annual gross revenues in excess of $1 million.

Prior to starting Heavenly Helpers, Theanna Zika worked as a dental hygienist. When she realized that temps received twice the pay of regular dental hygienists and enjoyed more freedom in their schedules, she began to cultivate relationships with local dentists; as a result, she was often their first choice. As they were accustomed to working with her, these dentists frequently chose her over individuals provided by large temp agencies.

Theanna Zika maintains involvement with a number of professional associations, community groups, and other organizations. She holds membership in the Kirkwood Des Peres Chamber of Commerce, the University of Oklahoma Alumni Association, Missouri Venture Forum, Vistage International, Yellow Tie International, and Go Small Biz - St. Louis. Additionally, she contributes her time and resources to a variety of charities, including Sierra Club, Paralyzed Veterans of America, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, as well as several wildlife protection groups. Theanna Zika also proudly supports the Art of Living Foundation, Innovations in Health, and the Center for Science in the Public Interest.

In her free time, Theanna Zika enjoys a number of sports and other hobbies. She regularly hikes, does yoga and Pilates, and plays golf. In addition, she takes pleasure in spending time in her garden and cooking. She is also an avid reader; her favorite authors include John Irving, Caroline Knapp, Ed McBain, Oliver Sacks, Carl Hiaasen, and others. Theanna Zika counts Crime & Punishment, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Catcher in the Rye, Bridges of Madison County, and In Cold Blood among her favorite books.
