Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care has named Jennifer Richardson as director of volunteer services.
“We are thrilled to have Jennifer join our team,” said Melissa Hiatt, senior director of development with Mountain Valley Hospice. “She has more than 15 years’ experience with hospice, and knows how important our volunteers are in providing compassionate care to patients and support to their families.”
“I am honored to join the Mountain Valley Hospice family, and look forward to recruiting and supporting our wonderful volunteers,” said Richardson.
She comes to Mountain Valley Hospice from Medi Home Health & Hospice in Boone (previously known as High Country Health Care System Hospice), where she recruited and supervised volunteers. She also helped increase referrals and donations for the agency.
Richardson has served as chairperson for Ashe County’s volunteer advisory board, and for the community resource committee. She also served as a member of the home and community block grant committee, and is a trainer in Virtual Dementia Tour. She is active in her church and community, is a Sunday School teacher, and enjoys spending time with family.
