Jennifer Farmer – Director of Nursing
Jennifer started as a nurses aide just out of high school. She was a stay at home mom for several years until her two oldest children were in school. She graduated LPN school in Loveland and moved to Ohio where she took her boards and enrolled in RN school. As an RN she worked high risk labor and delivery for many years until she took another break to stay home and care for her mother. After her mother passed she returned to the work force. She thought she’d try something a little less stressful and chose long term care. Little did she know what awaited her! As a charge nurse, Unit manager, Director of Restorative, and Interim Director of Nursing she found her calling. The relationships that grew as she provided care for elders and their families filled her soul. As a Clinical Reimbursement Coordinator, her somewhat type A personality fits the roll of ensuring all information is correct and in place for reporting the elders’ assessments and submitting for reimbursement.
Through the years she has shared in conversations with other long term care staff that if they won the lottery they would create a nursing home that … that is…The Green House Homes.
