SYNERGY HomeCare of Sheboygan owners Jenni Spinelli and Jack Martin are a couple whose dreams are coming true. They met in 2016 and quickly realized that they were better together. They married in 2018 and began thinking about how they could not only live together, but work together as well.
Jenni worked in senior living for many years prior to forming SYNERGY HomeCare of Sheboygan. Her very first job was a dining server in an assisted living community where her great-grandmother lived. She grew up spending lots of time with her grandparents, often traveling up to their lake home for weekends. Her family always modeled taking care of one another and others. They instilled a strong sense of duty and responsibility in her.
As an adult, Jenni found her way back to serve seniors. First as a Marketing Director helping them transition to a community setting, then as an Executive Director responsible for the overall operations of the community.
As an Executive Director, Jenni missed her hands-on time with residents. When the opportunity to shape her own business serving others came along, she knew it was time to jump!
Jack also has a strong desire to see veterans living their best lives. He is a Desert Shield/Desert Storm Gulf War veteran and cares deeply about his brothers-in-arms. Jack comes from a military family. Jack's grandfather was a WWII ARMY veteran and his uncle was a commanding officer in the NAVY during the Vietnam Era.
Jack’s job in IT eventually took him to many area skilled nursing facilities to manage their information technology. He witnessed the isolation of seniors in these settings and once again felt that familiar sadness.
Jenni invited Jack to many events that her community held, he really enjoyed getting to know the residents and talking with them. Jack waltzed with several seniors at one of the assisted living community’s dance parties, he even dressed as Santa for their Christmas party! This is how Jenni and Jack found love for each other and their shared passion for service.
When Jenni and Jack opened SYNERGY HomeCare of Sheboygan, they knew they could care for people the way they wanted and deserved to be treated; with dignity, choice and help to find purpose in their lives.
Jenni has a special place in her heart for caregivers! After 12 years of watching the great service caregivers provided to her residents, Jenni knew they were the reason residents were happy and thriving. This is why she has chosen a very high bar for her caregivers. She wants them to feel appreciated, earn a good living and live a good life. As the agency grows, her committed caregivers will be rewarded for being a large part of that growth, treating them like family.
With the amount of expertise that Jack and Jenni bring to the table and their passion for seniors and caregivers, they are certain to become an agency known for "Exceptional care, delivered with love!"
