About Us

All members of our team carry full liability insurance, are bonded, and have passed DOJ background-check clearance.
Jenny lives in Arroyo Grande with her husband Johnny, three dogs—Gus, Loca & Lily (pugs)—and three goats—Maggie, May & Skye. Listening to her vinyl record collection, visiting estate sales for funky finds, and sipping Earl Gray tea make her happy.
Taking her first caregiving job at the age of 17, Nina has extensive experience and a passion for the care industry. She has provided live-in support, private caregiving, respite care for children with developmental disabilities, and management for childcare facilities. Nina also owned and operated a daycare in her hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Nina earned certification as a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) at Lompoc Convalescent Care Home in 2005 and a degree in Applied Development Psychology from University of Pittsburgh in 2010.

Nina has since settled down on the Central Coast with her 10-year-old son. She loves living here, close to family and loved ones, and she is excited to be part of the GuidedAging team!

Serving the Central Coast since 2017.
