Jennifer J. Douglas
Jennifer Douglas is the President, CEO and founding partner of Awaken to Life Home Care. Jennifer’s life work has been dedicated to helping inspire and motivate her clients to live their most independent lives, with a passion for helping them age in place.
In 1993, Jennifer began her career as an independent provider of home care services. After 17 years in the home care field, Jennifer obtained her LPN Nursing License in 2011.
For the next 7 years, she worked in a primary care setting as a rehabilitation nurse and specialized in dementia care where she helped design innovative/interactive programs for each of her patients. Jennifer experienced firsthand many of the hurdles families face and must overcome when wanting to take their loved one home. Watching these families struggle and not be able to take their loved one home, Jennifer decided that she wanted to open her own company, Awaken to Life Private Duty Nursing, specializing in dementia care.
Realizing the greatest need for non-skilled care, Jennifer built her first home care team. This resulted in such a successful outcome that she became inspired to expand, take on a partner, create Awaken to Life Home Care, and help serve many more families in need.
Sherry B. Marsh
Sherry Marsh is a founding partner and CFO of Awaken to Life, LLC.
As a Hamilton native, born and raised, Sherry proudly started her first job at Jolly’s Drive-in working as a “car hop” during summer, until she graduated from Hamilton High School. Moving into adulthood, Sherry started her career in the business world beginning as a file clerk for the Butler Metropolitan Housing Authority, working her way up the ladder obtaining her Public Housing Management Certification. From there, she moved on to a 20-plus year career in the legal field where she got her start as a legal assistant to two attorneys at a small law firm in downtown Hamilton.
Sherry comes from a family of very strong women who has inspired her to always set goals and let nothing stop her from reaching them. Sherry was most inspired by her Aunt Kathy, an amazingly strong, loving, and caring woman, who took Sherry under her wing and encouraged her to push forward, helping her gain a position with a much larger litigation firm in downtown Cincinnati. The wealth of knowledge and skill gained from that experience brings her to current day allowing her to move once again toward reaching her next goal.
After many years of working in the legal field, Sherry decided she wanted to broaden her horizon and experience something new. In following Jennifer’s success, watching her build and create her new company, Awaken to Life Private Duty Nursing. The success Jennifer had attained in such a short time was very inspiring, so much so that Sherry wanted to become part of that success. Jennifer and Sherry have been life-long friends, and now business partners and intend to continue creating and building together, a company which holds its standards to the highest level, always keeping a positive mindset, approaching every obstacle with a solution in mind, to deliver a standard of care that exceeds all expectations.
