A few weeks ago, I was talking with someone who supports Care Net and was praising our staff for something amazing they had done. In the midst of that conversation, they found out about Shelbie and Janessa joining the team last year. I thought it would be nice to highlight each of our staff and share who we are so that YOU, as our prayer warriors, friends for life, and supports, can have a face to go with the name as you pray for each of us.
I am beyond grateful for each of these women. They truly love each person that comes through our door in a way that beautifully reflects Jesus and His heart for the hurting and broken of our community.
His For Life,
Hello, my name is Jennifer Hungerford and I am the Client Services Director at Care Net. My favorite part of working at Care Net is knowing that I am helping individual women who need support and encouragement. I like to garden and I enjoy painting, reading, and studying theology and the Christian faith. The most interesting place I have ever visited is Tintagel Castle in Cornwall, England. Not only was it geographically beautiful, but it holds evidence of people having lived in the area since the 500's who engaged in trade with the Mediterranean peoples! If I could visit one time period in the past, it would be the mid 18th century, as I would like to meet an ancestor who was a very brave woman during the American Revolutionary war. My favorite quote is, "Strong women don't have attitudes. They have standards and boundaries." I am very passionate about helping women find their voice and make choices that will be beneficial for their bodies, minds, and souls.
Hiii! My name is Janessa McDonough and I started out as a client at Care Net about 3 years ago and am now the Staff Nurse here! My favorite part of working at Care Net is knowing that I am making a difference, building relationships, and saving lives. If you know me at all you know that I absolutely love food! One of the most delicious things I have ever eaten is my dad's chicken and noodles! I have
so many quotes that I love but a few of my favorites are: "She believed she could, so she did." "She leaves a sparkle wherever she goes." and "Be Brave Little One." if I could go and visit one time period in the past I would choose the 1950s. I love everything about it...the dances, diners, hair and clothing, and everything vintage! My hobbies include cooking, baking, hunting, fishing, and canning home goods. I am full of energy and keep the office upbeat with my positive and cheery disposition! I have learned so much working at Care Net and have become an amazing addition to the team here.
Hi all! My name is Karri Kaufman and I am the nurse manager at Care Net. Thirteen years ago I was registering my teenage daughter for a retreat at Care Net and was told they were looking for a nurse to do ultrasounds. I applied for the job and I have been here ever since! God is so good! My favorite part of working at Care Net is the people I see every day and the
honor of finding new little ones with the ultrasound . I love the Lord and I live to
serve Him. I pray daily that anyone who meets me will see Jesus through me. One
of my favorite books is Habakkuk's Plea, which is a historical fiction by
S. E. Thomas. My favorite animal is cats! I only have four cats right now but I used
to have ten! The funniest joke I know is...How many sides does a circle have?
2 sides, inside and outside! I love that God made us all unique, so why try to be
like everyone else!
Hi! My name is Shelbie Griffith, and I am the Office Administrator at Care Net! I have worked at Care Net for a year and a half and I love it! My favorite part of working at Care Net is that I get to do all of my favorite things...paperwork, organizing, filing, etc... I love the people I work with and I love that I get to help people. My hobbies include playing piano, organizing anything I can get my hands on, and spending time with my husband and dog. My favorite author of all time is Janette Oke and I love the Love Comes Softly series! I was born and raised in North Dakota and I do miss it sometimes...although the winters are way better here! One thing in my life that I will never do again is go canoeing! My friend dropped her oar, she reached to get it, we tipped, I can't swim...Yeah it was the worst, lol! If I came with a warning sign it would be: Will organize at the drop of a hat...or if there's a mess...I don't actually have to see anything drop.
Hey! Jennifier Bartlett here (yes my name is spelled correctly lol)! So...What time do you go to the dentist? 2:30 (tooth-hurty) I am the Executive Director at Care Net and I have had the privilege of being the Executive Director for about 8 1/2 years. My favorite part of working at Care Net is knowing that we are helping men and women make healthy choices and become better parents. A quote that has become almost a mantra for me is "Courage, Dear Heart" by C. S. Lewis. I love reading and it's
really hard to pick a favorite author, let alone a favorite book, so I picked two lol. A Cry for Mercy by Henri Nouwen and Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid. My hobbies include hanging out with my daughter, going to grad school, reading, quilting, and, during the summer, just being in the water! If you know me at all you know that I am full of sarcasm and puns, lol, but I am also full of love and compassion for others. I know that God has placed me here for a reason and I pray every day that His will be done at Care Net and in my life.
