Henderson Nursing and Rehab would like to welcome aboard our new Director of Nursing, Jennifer Barnett. Jennifer was born and raised in Henderson and is passionate about nursing and her family. Jennifer’s mother, Joyce Sheffer, worked for Gene’s Restaurant for many years before beginning a career with a local assisted living facility. Jennifer’s father was James Sheffer, better known as, “Gomer”. Jennifer has three sons, twins James and John Chambers, age 22, and Joshua Opperman, age 15.
Jennifer has worked in long term care for almost 20 years. She began her career as a CNA at Medco of Henderson while pursuing her nursing career at Henderson Community College. During her working career she worked as a CNA and charge nurse for the Methodist Hospital of Henderson. Jennifer decided to leave the hospital to peruse her love for the elderly.
In her spare time, Jennifer loves spending time with her sons, reading, and attending church regularly. She is looking forward to serving her hometown community once again.
