Jennifer read very positive reviews about SSM Health at Home (formerly SSM Home Care and Hospice) when she and her husband first arrived in Mt. Vernon, IL in 2009. The following year, she started working with children and adults at SSM Hospice. Then in 2011, she joined the Home Care side as a field nurse and was promoted to supervisor two years later.
In her current position, Jennifer is responsible for scheduling and evaluating nurses and therapists, making sure they have the tools they need to take good care of patients. She enjoys being in a leadership role for SSM Health, because of the value placed on living out the Mission and Values. When asked what she likes best about her job, Jennifer replies, "I love putting it all together and seeing the patient get better and eventually discharged."
