A Maine native, Jennifer is originally from South Portland and has lived and worked throughout the state. The passion that Jennifer has for advising seniors and their families began during her own journey with her mother. While trying to find a rehab community for her, she experienced firsthand the many challenges that seniors and their loved one’s face during what can be a stressful transition.
She quickly realized there is often a lack of support and overall guidance for such an important decision. The correct information can be difficult to find and very daunting for families during this crucial time. This experience created a real desire in Jennifer to find a way to help and support members of the senior community faced with similar situations. Motivated by this, Jennifer partnered with Jenna and together they created Coastal Transitions of Maine, to help Maine seniors and their families navigate through this. She brings over 20 years’ experience in marketing, customer service, and public relations and her genuine compassion, care and concern for Maine Seniors and their families make her the perfect advocate. Her natural passion for helping others, optimistic approach, and attention to detail make Jennifer an invaluable asset to those seeking guidance in making this very critical choice regarding senior care.
