Jen Hurd could not be more thrilled to be part of the Village team! Jen holds a Bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Psychology and has been in the healthcare field for over 13 years. As a certified dementia practitioner, Jen worked primarily in the field of dementia care for nearly a decade–managing care units, providing education, running support groups and working collaboratively with the Pioneer Network who has been a national leader in the culture change movement since the late 90’s. Her vision has always aligned with the idea of person-centered care, making it her mission to help cultivate communities that provide purpose, meaning and joy to people living with dementia. In her spare time she enjoys gardening, has a passion for cooking and loves to be in, on, or near any body of water.
