Jennifer first started working for H.R. Choices, Inc. in 2001 as a practicum student from North Central State College. Her first position with the company was as a DSP staff and later transitioned into the role of Care Coordinator. In 2004 Donna Herr gave Jennifer the chance to expand the business and start a day support program. In 2012 Donna decided to retire and in turn passed her business on to Jennifer. Jennifer has since continued to grow the company adding transportation. She has now worked in the DD field for 17 years
Jennifer was born and raised in Shelby and now lives in Ontario with her 2 teenage daughters. She is a proud graduate of NCSC with a Human Resources degree.
While I was still in college, I came to H.R. Choices as a practicum student from 2011 to 2012. I enjoyed my time with the company so much that I took a job as an Adminstrative Assistant right out of school. In 2014, I was promoted into the position of Care Coordinator. I stayed in that position until 2016 when I was asked to step into the role of Chief Operations Officer for HR Choices. I look forward to all the new challenges that arise as I continue to grow within the company. I love my job, especially the people I work with and that we provide services to. There is no better feeling then making a difference in someone's life.
I have been blessed with 3 amazing children, 2 boys and a girl. They are very involved in baseball, wrestling, and football. I have just recently purchased my first home and look forward to creating memories with my family in it. We enjoy spending time outside with our family and friends.
While my background is not in the DD field, I have spent the past 19 years working as an executive for large companies and bring a great deal of knowledge in running a large company with a lot of moving pieces. I look forward to the opportunity to help this company become one of the top providers in the state. I am also very excited to spend time with and get to know our individuals and learn some of the amazing things that they can teach me.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my son who is very active in sports. I am also learning on the fly what it is like to be a step-father of 2 teenage daughters. Honestly, nothing in life can prepare you for that. In the end I could not be any luckier to have the unbelievable blended family that I have.
I started with H.R. Choices in 2003 when my mother owned the company and worked different positions under her. In 2006 I settled into the Medical Coordinator position. I am very grateful for the opportunities from both my mother and Jennifer.
As I stated before my mother started this company and so this is a field that runs through my blood. In addition I am a proud mother of a daughter that will graduate from Miami University in 2019. She is majoring in Speech & Language Pathology with a minor in Special Education. Seems like she could be the third generation to work in this field.
Before working at H.R. Choices I spent 5 years working in child care. In my year with the company I have spent 6 months of that working in Day Support and the other 6 months working in the Administrative Office. I currently am the Office Manager. Along with running the office, I schedule all the staff at our residental homes.
I was born and raised in Mansfield, OH. I am married with 1 son who is involved in Boy Scouts and soccer. We enjoy going on family vacations and spending as much time together as possible.
I’m new to the DD field, but I’m no stranger to special needs. I have several relatives with a variety of special needs, one being closest to my heart; my sister. It has always warmed my heart to see my sister living the best life possible for her, so to me it means a lot to be a part of an agency that provides that kind of life to others like my sister. I’m excited to get to know all of the clients within our agency, and see them live their best lives too.
I was born and raised in Ohio. Me and my spouse were high school sweethearts, and now we are raising two beautiful kids together. We enjoy anything done together as a family. Whether it be an outdoor adventure, or a rainy day inside with snacks and movies; we’re happiest together.
I have been working with H.R. Choices for the past 7 years. I am currently a Care Coordinator for 5 homes, but started in 2011 as DSP. I find that every day is a learning experience and enjoy the opportunity to make a difference in our individuals lives. I love my job and enjoy the people that I work with as well as the clients I serve.
I have 2 adult children and 1 grandson. I love the outdoors, camping, fishing, and long walks. My favorite thing to do in my free time is to read a good book or spend time with my family and friends.
I have worked in the DODD field since 1982. I first started at Raintree group home and then moved on to Richland Newhope Industries where I spent 13 years. In 2014 I became an independent family resource provider. I then took a position with H.R. Choices where I am currently a Care Coordinator and Level One Coordinator.
I have a brother who has developmental disabilities. Caring for him throughout my life has given me a passion to see those with disabilities experience a high quality of life. I have a desire to give a voice to those who cannot advocate for themselves. It is my firm belief that all people deserve to be loved and cared for - no matter what.
I graduated from Madison High School in 1991 and proceeded to go to North Central Technical College were I recieved my Associates Degree in Therapeutic Recreation in 1993. In 2012 I was hired by H.R. Choices as a Direct Support Professional (DSP) while also working in our Dayhab. In 2016 I moved into the role of Activity Coordinator for the company, giving me the opportunity to use my degree to enrich the lives of our individuals.
I was born and raised in Mansfield Ohio. I enjoy having fun, playing games, listening to music, and swimming.I enjoy seeing the individuals smiling faces as they take pride in being part of their communites.
My experience in the field of disabilities spans over twenty years, with the last nine years spent as the Director of five Adult Day Service centers for another agency in adjacent counties. I also served as that agency's Employment First Coordinator and have been fortunate to have added past advisor for People First of Knox County and a past board member with NAMI to my journeys.
My husband and I live just outside of Lexington on a farm among all my Amish neighbors. Cherished in my life are my daughter Maggy, son Keegan, my husband of 34 years, and my crazy cute dog Henry. I love tending to my flowers, reading, and hula hooping!!! I am grateful in the amount of luck that has been bestowed upon me to work along side such passionate team members and awe-inspiring individuals, all of which I am truly blessed to call my friends.
I have been involved in this field for my whole life, from family members with disabilities, to becoming an independent provider. In addition, I have worked as a residential provider through the years. I have been doing this for upwards of 20 years and have known several of the individuals that we service for a very long time now.
I was born in Texas but have lived in Ohio for the better part of my life. I love animals, and have taken in several rescues in over the years. I love tattoo's and piercing, and anyone that knows me is aware that Halloween to me is equivalent to Christmas for everyone else.
I started with H.R. Choices in July of 2016 as a DSP in our residential homes before being part of starting our Transportation Departmet in September of 2013. I started out as a driver of the one bus that we had. As the department grew I stepped into the role of Transportation Coordinator. We currently have 2 buses, 1 twelve passenger van, and 1 mini van that we utilize to transport individuals. I also step in to help in our Adult Day Support when they are short staffed. Last, but not least, I handle the maintenance of the 3 buildings that the company has.
I am married to a beautiful and amazing woman, Kim who also works for the company. We have 2 wonderful children, Taryn who currently is attending Ashland University and our son Riley who just graduated from high school and plans to start working in the construction field.
