At the age of 14, Jeff purchased his first vehicle for $412.50! Wow, can you say cheap! By age 16, he had fixed up, bought and sold and bartered his way up to a 3-year-old VW Scirocco. Jeff was certain his life career would be involved in cars; he was clearly a car guy. At first, he worked for parts supply stores but was most interested in auto painting. By the age of 30, he had worked as a regional sales rep for a major paint manufacturer and as a painter for the Boeing company. Life changes including a wife and three kids prompted him to start an auto restoration shop.
Working in healthcare was the last thing he foresaw for himself. While building the auto restoration business, his wife's grandfather chose to come to live with Jeff and his family. The two years Frank lived with them were life changing for Jeff. He assisted in caring for Frank, enjoying the time together and the stories of Frank’s life and history. Although his love for fixing up cars was still present, he realized he wanted to be a part of something more meaningful-- after all the beauty of an old car was as much in the history of the driver as it was the car – why not invest in the driver? The privilege and honor he felt in helping others were profound and uplifting. Beth and Jeff spent a lot of time talking, thinking and looking at what options they could pursue to provide a compassionate, caring healthcare company. From their shared commitment and vision, In It Together was born.
Nursing has afforded me the privilege of never being bored! I began my career just as health care was changing its emphasis on the delivery of service in the inpatient setting to more out-patient and home care settings. This change was very much in tune with my work style preferences and nursing skills. As a result, my clinical experience was heavily weighted in the delivery of care in these settings. Working in these settings allowed me to connect with patients where they “lived”, perform teaching, and collaborate with other caregivers to meet the patient’s total needs. The blending of these functions in a job made every day an exciting challenge. As my career progressed and I obtained an advanced degree, I entered into more administrative field of work. In nursing administration, I consistently worked for non-profit hospitals or organizations that incorporated the meeting of the patient’s needs as a pillar in their mission. Again as health care went through more changes, I discovered a field that quickly became my passion for many years and that was Quality Improvement. Now that I want to work part-time, I have come full circle. I am back in a home care setting collaborating with caregivers and performing teaching to ensure the clients receive the best possible care in a homelike setting. This is what I love the most about working for IITRN. The clients, the caregivers, and the office staff I work with are all wonderful human beings and excellent at what they do. When I make a visit to a home, I look at the caregivers with admiration for doing the amazing work of being a caregiver. At the same time, I see in the face of every client a human being who deserves the best possible care that can be given to them in this stage of their life’s journey. I feel it is an absolute privilege to serve on this great team of IITRN and to serve our community in this manner.
