A lifelong South Central Pennsylvania resident, Jennifer Murray, currently the Director of Personal Care, began at Homeland a little over a year ago in March of 2016.
Murray has been a nurse for seventeen years. “I received my LPN certification in 1999 and became a Personal Care Home Administrator in 2005.” She also holds certifications as a Medication Trainer, Fire Safety Trainer and as a Certified Marketing Professional.
“I always knew I wanted to be a nurse – since I was a child. I always enjoyed taking care of everyone around me. I have a natural instinct to help those in need.”
Her first job related to nursing or personal care was with the Middletown Home. “I was there for twelve years, serving as Director of Residential Living.” Murray was also charged with the task of handling all of their marketing efforts.
Before beginning at Homeland Center she held positions with a few other facilities in the Lancaster area, but soon returned back to Harrisburg.
“I love what I do and where I work. I am a people person and truly enjoy working with both residents and their families to find the right care for their current needs. I enjoy making a difference in their lives.”
“Homeland is such a close knit community. Residents, families and staff are all so welcoming and courteous. Everyone I pass in the hallways is smiling. The smiles are soon followed with a ‘hello’ or a ‘hi how are you’?” Murray feels “at home” at Homeland Center.
