Jonathan Marsh, Owner of Home Helpers of Bradenton

Jonathan Marsh is an impassioned, compassionate man with a vision of service and community.  He now stands at the forefront of a company that is changing the very course of home care services.

After graduating from Florida State University, Jonathan built a career spanning sixteen years. During those years he consulted with some of the most recognizable Fortune 500 companies but also began to take stock of his personal journey.  While his work had been deemed a success by industry standards, it had left him feeling empty and often at odds with his own values and personal goals. 

It was during this period of re-evaluation that Jonathan began to consider his best destiny.  He reflected on the life of his Grandmother, a strong and formative influence in his life.  He remembers that during her life of 97 years there were times that she needed regular care in her home but had no family or resources locally to provide that.  Jonathan witnessed firsthand the sheer devastation that this can bring upon families in this situation.  This realization along with some deep consideration, extensive conversation and encouragement from friends inspired Jonathan to consider a new direction.

In January of 2015, with the formation of Home Helpers of Bradenton, Jonathan embarked on a lifelong dream of fulfilling that best destiny he had dreamt of.  With the formation of his home care agency, Jonathan will now be providing a resource to give compassionate, complete and empowering care to the community.  Through the use of cutting edge technology and sincere, personal involvement,  his company stands to set the benchmark in total, personal care.  

Jonathan is a Certified Alzheimer’s Educator and holds a degree from Florida State University, School of Business.  He has traveled extensively, enjoys  sports and healthy living.  His greatest desire is to give back to the community through helping others while creating jobs and providing exceptional service.

Irene Griffith, Registered Nurse of Home Helpers of Bradenton

For Irene Griffith, service to others is more than a lifetime commitment, it is a calling.  With a career that has spanned over forty years, Irene has touched countless lives while building a strong history of ethical and professional healthcare service.

After graduating from Maria College in 1971 she began her journey at St. Peter’s Hospital Department of Medical Nursing. While there she gained skills in the delivery of direct patient care, a skill that would mold her core values as a healthcare professional. In 1986 as a continuation of her commitment to the highest standard of care she attained her Master of Science degree in Nursing Administration, Medical – Surgical Nursing from Russell Sage College in Troy, New York.    

Over the coming decades, Irene was involved in critical growth and restructuring of nursing protocols and enhancement of patient care delivery standards. She served in multiple levels of nursing from staff nurse to head nurse of a 46 bed medical unit. During these years of service, Irene tirelessly committed herself to not only improving the nursing profession by hands on service but also to continual personal growth and development. While at St. Peter’s Hospital she rose through the various levels of service and in 2011 was named Assistant Vice President of Patient Service.  During her tenure in these various positions Irene was always mindful of the call to serve that inspired her to become a nurse.

In 2015, after what many would consider a full career Irene found herself once again being called to serve others. She has joined Home Helpers of Bradenton, FL to serve as their registered nurse and lead of client care.  For Irene this is a natural continuation of a lifetime of service and one that she is elated to be involved with. With her extensive experience in every aspect of nursing and patient care she will bring a level of service that is unmatched in the industry.

Irene also enjoys spending time with her husband and family as well as traveling. Her move to Florida allows her to enjoy the warm weather, coastal lifestyle and recreation. Her affiliation with Home Helpers Bradenton also brings her the opportunity to answer the call to serve that has shaped and driven her life.
