Jen’s Story

Tired of feeling burned out and underappreciated in a job that felt purposeless, Jen decided to give Tabitha a try. From her first day of new employee orientation, this was a place where she finally felt she belonged. It wasn’t that every day was easy, but at Tabitha Jen felt valued…useful…like her contribution to the workplace mattered—really mattered.

She’s seen her career blossom and grow during the eight years she’s been part of the Tabitha team. Her responsibilities have increased in scope, and she’s experienced multiple roles inside Tabitha’s complete continuum of services.

For Jen, there’s never a day without variety, never a lack of positive challenges to stretch her abilities and always a reason to be grateful. Find out how you, too, can find professional fulfillment doing work that matters!
