Founder and CEO
Jennifer attended UNC-Charlotte and earned her Master of Arts in Gerontology in 2002.
Following her work for various for-profit and non-profit organizations in the aging industry, she opened Caregiving Corner in 2005. Jennifer became nationally certified as a care manager in 2008 and nationally certified as a guardian in 2018. In 2023, Jennifer obtained her National Master Guardian designation, held by fewer than 100 guardians nationwide.
Jennifer previously served as President of the Southeast Chapter of the Aging Life Care Association and has also served as a Board Member for the North Carolina Guardianship Association.
More important than her professional accomplishments are the qualities of compassion, integrity, and resourcefulness that equip her with the skills to help families through the most difficult caregiving challenges.
Jennifer is a proud Fellow of the Leadership Academy of the Aging Life Care Association, the highest designation achievable in this profession.
Why have a 24/7
On-call Safety Net?
The elder care system is confusing. All it takes is something as simple as a fall, and your normally healthy life gets turned upside down. While physicians are experts in injury and illness, they don't know you and what's important to you day-to-day.
The 24/7 On Call Safety Net Program gives you peace of mind that in an emergency, an expert on aging—someone who knows your conditions, your priorities and your goals—will be available to help you communicate with the ER staff so you receive the care you want for the quality of life you deserve.
We cut through the bureaucracy and medical-ese to be sure you are offered the full range of choices, in the hospital and afterwards if you need follow-up care.
Join our 24/7 On Call Safety Net program so you can rest easy knowing you have an advocate in your corner when you need one most.
