– 2021 Cascades Verdae Supernova Winner –
The Supernova Award is the highest individual honor that our company gives and each year. One individual on the leadership team at Cascades Verdae is voted by their colleagues as the community’s Supernova based on an assortment of criteria. Each year during the Senior Living Communities Annual Meeting, the winner is revealed and given a customized crystal award at the company’s formal Supernova Awards Evening. The criteria for voting is based on upholding our company’s mission to be caring professionals dedicated to quality services. Additionally, this individual will consistently deliver excellent customer service (to Members, families, and colleagues), lead positively with integrity, take accountability, put the team before themselves, and embody the company’s vision to create communities where people live longer, healthier, and happier lives.
This year, we are proud to congratulate our Lifestyle Advisor, Jenny Joyce, as the recipient of the 2021 Cascades Verdae Supernova Award. This honor was bestowed at the Senior Living Communities Annual Meeting on Thursday, August 5th at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation on Amelia Island, Florida. As a Lifestyle Advisor, Jenny is a knowledgeable and detailed-oriented professional who guides prospective Members through their retirement journey, finding solutions for their particular needs. She also serves as a key marketing contact for their campus in the greater community.
“Jenny Joyce is one of our biggest team players. Her heart is so big. You name it and she’s going to give it her all and take care of our families, our Members, our team. She’s one of the most caring and compassionate human beings that I have been around.”
– Cory Hoots, Executive Director at Cascades Verdae
Jenny has been an integral part of the team at Cascades Verdae for 14 years. For her, working with others has always been a passion and desire. Helping seniors consider living a longer, healthier, happier life brings her a lot of joy. As a Lifestyle Advisor, she enjoys walking prospects through this exciting and difficult decision.
In her free time, Jenny enjoys spending time with her husband and high school sweetheart, Johnathan, as well as two children, Christian and Mackenzie (with a soon-to-be son-in-law, Riley). Her family has owned Cavalier King Charles dogs for over 15 years and she loves to spoil her fur babies, Mickey and Macie. When she is with her family, they enjoy being outdoors and are always on an adventure (hiking, fishing, boating, etc). Her interests include entertaining, playing games and cooking. As a family, the Joyce’s attend and volunteer at UpCountry Church in Travelers Rest, South Carolina. Jenny sings on the worship team, works with the welcome tent, and assists in the children’s ministry.
