Jenny’s story

I am a Care Assistant on 5 Henson and, each day when I wrap-up my shift, my cup is overflowing with joy and the knowledge that I was able to be there for my patients and families. I had the unique opportunity to be a part of the Children’s Mercy “Grow Our Own” Care Assistant Training Program. Through this program, I received course work and on-the-job training to become a Care Assistant and can now give the committed and compassionate bed-side care that my family received when my brother was a patient here. Being given the chance to give-back in my career is so rewarding and I’m forever grateful to be a part of an organization that took a chance on me and allowed me to grow professionally!
