Management Team

Jennifer Marino

MDS Coordinator
The Commons employee

Jennifer Marino has worked in the long-term care industry since 1991, having started as a CNA while in nursing school. At the time of her graduation, hospitals were laying off RNs and hiring LPNS, so she started working in long-term care until she could get a hospital job. “Here I am, all these years later, working in long-term care!” she says. “I found out very quickly that I loved long-term care.”

She was working in a challenging situation at another community and was considering a change when an associate told her about The Commons. She got a job here and found what she needed was a change of place, not a career change. “I came to The Commons, and quickly my love of long-term care was rejuvenated!”

Her favorite part of her job is the daily interaction with the residents and their families and working with other team members. “For the first time in a long time, I am surrounded by associates who want to do the very best they can,” she says. “We all realize how blessed we are to work in this environment.”
