Employee Spotlight: Jenny Parker

Jenny Parker’s interest in Senior Home Companions first sparked when she met a caregiver while working as a Certified Nursing Assistant in a memory care facility.

“I admired the patience and elegance that the caregiver showed while providing care,” Jenny said.

Jenny is happy to now be a member of the SHC family. She started three years ago as a Client Coordinator. Among other tasks, she draws upon her many years of experience in the healthcare field to train caregivers and match them with clients in need of their specialized skills.

Outside of work, Jenny enjoys spending time with her husband Paul and her daughter Lily. She loves joining them for hiking and kayaking adventures as well as singing while Paul plays guitar. This summer, she looks forward to collaborating with her daughter in setting up a lemonade stand to fund pediatric cancer research.

Whether she’s with her family at home or her “second family” at SHC, Jenny greatly appreciates the value of caring for people.

“The act of caring for someone is the greatest gift,” Jenny said. “You can wake up every day knowing you are about to make someone’s life better.”
