Margi Kenny, Recruitment & Engagement Coordinator

Margi Kenny is the newest member of our Home Instead Team. She was hired as the Recruitment & Engagement Coordinator and is very excited about hiring quality CAREGivers for the agency. Although she moved from Washington and is a new resident to Houston, she is not new to the in-home care industry. Her 18-year career as a CAREGiver and supervisor in this field gives her the experience needed for this leadership position.

Although Margi has worked in various supervisory roles throughout her career, her passion is in human resources and she enjoys the challenge of recruiting and selecting the highest quality caregivers. She also enjoys managing the caregivers and the reward of developing strong relationships with them. She is looking forward to becoming part of our friendly, active staff and is excited to network in the community as well.

One thing she is not experienced in is being a grandmother. She must learn to adapt to this role quickly, as her first grandchild was born a few days after her arrival to Texas. Her daughter and son-in-law have lived in the area for many years and she is excited to be near them. Being close to her family was the primary reason for her move to Houston and she really enjoys living here and working for Home Instead Senior Care.

As the Recruitment & Engagement Coordinator, Margi is responsible for conducting applicant interviews ensuring that our organization only hires the best CAREGivers. Once CAREGivers are hired, Margi conducts all orientations and trainings. She is also in charge of organizing and facilitating our quarterly CAREGiver meetings.

Margi is responsible for providing this training to all of our CAREGivers. She also provides additional training on various topics ranging from arthritis to diabetes. For all of our future clients, Margi works diligently to make sure that the highest quality CAREGivers are employed by our organization.
