Jennie Perkins is quiet and not inclined to talk a lot. But when asked what she most likes about caregiving, she was quick to respond: “I get to meet a lot of people and they become friends”.
She’s been a caregiver for 12 years and in that much time, she’s experienced and adapted to a lot of changes. Her former employer was acquired by Brightstar Care 7 years ago where she remains today. Jennie is a hard worker. Besides caregiving, she works at Sam’s Club in Hendersonville and as a scale attendant at Polk County landfill.
With 3 jobs, Jennie’s schedule leaves little free time but when she’s able, she enjoys spending time with her 6 grandchildren, four girls and two boys. Jennie also likes to relax riding her 3 wheel motorcycle. Sometimes, she even rides it to work, to the delight of her clients.
We’re thrilled to have Jennie Perkins on our team. Thanks for your service to others Jennie. You’re the June Brightstar Care Greenville / Spartanburg Caregiver of the month!
