Jenn Panitzke RN - Garnette Gardens
January 1, 2008
Jenn has lived in Redwood Falls most of her life. She is married to Jamison and they have three children, Jaden 13, Keelie 12, Ella almost 7, and are expecting the newest member of the Panitzke family in July of 2014. In her leisure time, Jenn is busy with the her children and their activities. When she can find the time, she also enjoys going to the lake, playing volleyball, softball and golf.
Jenn started her nursing career as an LPN and finished her RN degree in 2006. In her job as Director of Health Services for Garnette Gardens, she oversees the resident’s health care needs, making sure they are taken care of to the best of practice. Training the resident assistant staff to meet these needs is another important part of her job.
Jenn has been with Garnette Gardens for “six happy years”. For Jenn, the favorite part of her job is getting to know the residents and their families. Jenn feels that the staff, residents and their families are like her second family.
The biggest challenge for Jenn is “seeing residents go...whether its a death or to another level of care facility”.
