James Jennings is the Executive Director of Commonwise Home Care’s Richmond Branch, which he joined in July of 2018.
A Virginia native, James spent summers in college helping care for his aging grandparents on their Independence, VA farm. His experience drove him towards health care, and eventually, to work with older adults.
Prior to Commownwise, James worked at Hometeam, a venture-backed home care provider in New York City. As the sixth hire, he was instrumental in building intake and on-boarding processes for new customers. He went on to manage intake and recruiting teams, so he could familiarize himself with all parts of the business operations.
James lives in Scott’s Addition with his wife, Amanda, and their cat, Edith. They’re expecting their first child this November.
He holds a BA in English Language & Literature from the University of Virginia.
