My goal at Foothill Assisted Living is for every resident and family member to be treated with genuine love, care, respect, and dignity.
I hope to make a positive impact on the lives of our residents, staff, and community. I bring 16 years of background experience in Skilled Nursing in the capacity of C.N.A, R.N.A, LVN Charge Nurse, Treatment Nurse, Infection Control Nurse and Director of Staff of Development.
Family is everything to me and when not at work, I spend my time with my wife and children.
I begin my health care journey when I was 19 years old here at Foothill working as a Caregiver and Medical Technician. After obtaining my nursing degree I moved on to a clinical setting working as a triage and floor nurse providing care to a variety of patients from pediatrics to family medicine. After 8 years and a diverse amount of experience, I returned to where my journey began, here at Foothill Retirement as our Wellness Director. My goal at Foothill is to provide each resident with the best quality care while addressing their individual needs with compassion.
As a father of three small children, I enjoy the little things in life, coaching my eldest sons little league baseball team, coloring with my youngest son, reading stories to my baby girl, date night with my wife and taking family hikes with our German Shepherd “Raider”.
I’m delighted to be a part of such a compassionate and professional team at Foothill. I have been in the healthcare field for over 30 years in the Greater Los Angeles area. My background includes experience with durable medical equipment, wound care and continence care programs, home health and home care services, and most recently, with geriatric behavioral health. Meeting and exceeding the expectations of those we serve is my utmost goal and greatest reward.
Among my personal interests are running, bicycling, golfing, sailing and yoga. Spending time with my grand-babies and family is my greatest joy! I am an active member of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses, and as a UCLA graduate-I am an avid Bruin supporter!
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.
