Director of Homecare Operations

 As the Director of Homecare Operations for Comforts of Home – Care, Jen’s crucial role is to oversee the day-to-day operations of our company by supporting and leading the entire office team. She brings with her a diverse set of skills, and is responsible for company growth and expansion, including adding new services.

Her previous experience as a professional chef for 15 years taught her many invaluable skills, including working in a strong team environment, time management, leadership, and training.

Jen’s granny was her best friend growing up—she taught Jen how to forage for foods, which they would then bring to the kitchen and spend hours cooking, baking, and canning. Although she has since passed away from dementia, Jen carries on that love of being in the kitchen.

Along with a natural talent for being a nurturer, Jen enjoys being able to make a difference in people’s lives. She’s proudly born and raised in Winnipeg (and lived in Calgary for 8 years in her 20s while pursuing her culinary career). Jen completed the Professional Cooking Program at SAIT, is a Certified Red Seal Chef, and holds a certificate in Conflict Management Skills.
