Jennifer L. FitzPatrick, MSW, LCSW-C, CSP (Certified Speaking Professional)
Founder, Jenerations Health Education, Inc.
I founded Jenerations Health Education, Inc. to help healthcare organizations grow and better meet the needs of their patients, clients and caregivers. My top-notch team of trainers and I help you by offering high-quality continuing education marketing events for both professionals who can refer to you and prospective patients/families who may need your services. Recently Greenleaf Book Group published my first book, Cruising Through Caregiving: Reducing The Stress of Caring For Your Loved One, which helps caregivers better understand how to navigate care for a loved one.
My passion for this field began when I landed a job at a nursing home in high school. Prior to starting Jenerations, I have worked in many areas of healthcare and have taught gerontology since 2001 at institutions such as Johns Hopkins University, Towson University and Howard Community College.
I am also a regular conference keynote and breakout session speaker. Associations and corporations work with me to talk about how to improve service and outcomes for clients and patients of different generations as well as how to reduce stress for working caregivers.
