When Mom’s was in need of a new Office Manager, we had a wish list describing the ideal candidate: First on the list was Organizational Skills, to keep our well-oiled machine running smoothly, of course!! Then came Friendly Manner—a person who would be the face of Mom’s, greeting and assisting visitors. We also needed someone with business experience and preferably some knowledge of landscaping, remodeling and design. Well, we won the Staffing Lottery in Jenni Drury! She’s all that and more!
Jenni ran her own business for 6 years, hence the organizational skills. She and her husband Patrick have created numerous perennial gardens over their 22 years together, so she’s pretty knowledgeable when it comes to gardening and plants. The two are also parents of two teens, Mac and Bella, and one fur-child named Otis, a Pug. But wait; there’s more. Jenni knows American Sign Language, an uncommon but very useful skill. She owns a gun (glue gun, that is) and is prepared to use it. Jenni says she can smoke meat with the best of them. (This may need to be verified in a taste test someday.) And she loves to bake. Bingo!
