Jenny Gower: Training + Retention Coordinator

Jenny started her wonderful journey with Home Instead in 2009. After 5 years of providing in-home care she joined Spokane’s small office team as Recruiter, Retention and Scheduler. Jenny later added the joy of training CarePro’s in need of Washington State’s certification. Jenny feels Home Instead’s tagline “to us it’s personal” is the cornerstone to build special relationships with in-office co-workers, CarePro’s and clients.

Jenny loves to travel, do genealogy, invest time in her church’s activities and spend time with family which includes her husband, 4 kids, 4 grandchildren. She is looking forward to meeting her first great-grandson later in 2023.

Erik Hanson: Owner

Erik and his family are proud to be the newest part of the Home Instead family here in Spokane. Erik grew up in Redmond; met his wife while attending WSU, and started his career as a teacher in Tacoma. After nearly 20 years in ministry as a pastor in Berkeley CA and Boulder CO, Erik returns to Spokane with a deep love for people and a passion to see them flourish and live well at home.

Erik and his family ski in the winter and soak in the summer. They dote on their two labradoodles, and you’ll often catch them cheering on their own kids on a soccer field or track.
