I’m happy to carry on our community’s mission, to serve the greatest generation with honor, respect, faith, and integrity. My goal at Foothill is for every resident and family member to be treated with genuine love, care, and respect and remain innovative through modern advances in senior living. I hope to make an impact on the lives of team members and residents and develop a leadership style that people respect and emulate. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and of course, shopping.
In college, I completed a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management, but nursing has always been my calling, so I went back to school to get my nursing degree. I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with seniors who have touched so many lives, including mine. I realize that if I can put a smile on my resident’s or team member’s faces, I have done a good deed for the day. My favorite part of the job is knowing that I have made a positive impact in someone’s life each day. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my three children and husband. We love watching movies and watch sporting events that my kids participate in.
“Foothill is a unique and charming community and I consider myself extremely fortunate to be a part of the team here.” I care deeply about the families that come to us with the challenges of transitioning into a senior community, and we provide assistance every step of the way, relating with compassion and concern. I bring over twenty years of experience in the Health Care arena to Foothill working with Skilled Nursing Facilities, Rehabilitation, Assisted Living communities and Dementia care.
Jenniffer states, “Activities are so much more than mere board games or arts and crafts. They are unique moments throughout the day that evoke giggles, smiles, and emotion to create new memories. Foothill Retirement is not simply a name on a building. It is a cozy community of caring hearts and souls where friendships are built and the patterns of everyday life glisten”.
Jenniffer was born and raised in Los Angeles and holds an Undergraduate Degree in Science of Kinesiology and a minor in Pre-Physical Therapy from Pasadena City College. She is still pursuing her license as a Physical Therapist.
In her free time Jenniffer loves to play tennis, bowl, paint, take photographs, travel and go hiking with her dog Bowzer.
