Jeannie has been a registered nurse for over 20 years, but is just starting her third year as a hospice nurse. She chose to pursue Hospice in this stage of her career because it provides her with the opportunity to practice nursing for the reasons she chose to enter the profession… To provide meaningful patient-centered care.
Patient Care Philosophy
- Hospice is focused on a quality end of life, but I also see it as an opportunity to celebrate life and the roads a person has traveled along the way… the ups and the downs.
- The Registered Nurse Case Manager is about delivering patent-centered care. What hurdles need to be cleared to help my patients with their physical, emotional and spiritual needs? I coordinate and provide patients medical care in the home and act as a link between the patient and the various disciplines hospice offers.
- Associates Degree, Nursing: Greenville Technical School, Greenville, South Carolina

When she isn’t providing holistic care to her patients, Jeannie the avid reader and cook, loves most anything she can do outside – hiking, sailing and (if the deer allow it) gardening. Preferably in the sunshine (I’m not a fan of cold or wet!)
