Our Caregiver Spotlight - Jennifer
My name is Jennifer. I°«ve worked at CHC as a State Tested Nursing Assistant, (S.T.N.A.), for over 5 years.
Why I LOVE my Christian Home Care Family: Excellence starts from the head down through the ranks. Everyone in our office is gifted in their own area of service to our team. They genuinely care about their employees, clients and families. This is a Blessing!
Christian Home Care is one of a kind. We have received the °»Top Workplace°… Award for the last four consecutive years. It has truly been a blessing to care for our clients. I treasure the history, personal stories, life wisdom and friendships I°«ve encountered from my clients over the years.
A little about me: I was born in Sandusky and grew up in Bellevue, OH. Our family had 3 horses and I still consider myself a °»country girl°… at heart. Raised minutes away from Cedar Point meant a day of roller coasters. Being close to Lake Erie and spending so much time there means that the water feels like Home to me.
After high school I attended the University of Toledo and studied social work. After about 2 years at UT I obtained employment at the Chrysler Corp. I worked there for about 14 years before taking early retirement to do something more meaningful to me.
Some of the things I did following my early retirement: I worked in Real Estate, I hired and fired employees for the Vice President of a fortune 500 company, and I traveled overseeing offices in 3 states. While doing this I still felt like I had more to give and wanted to do something more meaningful. I received nurse aide training and took my test to become an S.T.N.A. I immediately found my home at CHC.
I have two children. My son is 21 years old. He plays football for Tiffin University. I LOVE football! I also have a13 year old daughter. She is a 1st degree Black Belt and is now in training for her 2nd degree Black Belt. She has also received a number of awards for her poetry and photography. Her focus is on bringing awareness to social issues like °»Domestic Violence°… and °»Human Trafficking°….
I love spending time with my amazing husband. We are active at local gyms and do Aqua Cycling. I also love traveling and being with family that includes my German shepherd.
Lesser known facts about me: I love power tools. I fix and build things around my house. I°«m a huge Ohio State Football Fan. My son grew up around former OSU football coach Jim Tressel. We spent time with Coach Tressel and his wife. We had field passes to any game for years. I°«ve met a lot of coaches and NFL players.
I love to sing. Until my daughter was born I sang with the °»Praise and Worship°… group at one of the Megachurches in the area. We recorded CDs with Sony Music. I have sung at most of my friends weddings. Keeping fit is a priority so along with the aqua cycling I also love to lift weights at the gym.
