Born in Boston! In 1991 my husband Fred and I moved to Tucson from Connecticut. We purchased Tucson’s Remedy Staffing franchise in 1992. At that time the staffing industry was the fastest growing business in the US. We had found our niche.
We had many great years in the business. When I unexpectedly lost my husband, I took over Remedy, our dream business. His abiding belief in being an active part of the community lives on in the Fred Henninger Fund at the Tucson Children’s Museum. Every year we give a donation in the name of all our clients to the Tucson Children’s Museum, which entitles 20+ challenged families an annual membership.
I poured myself into the business which occupied me 24 hours a day. I love what I do. We love finding livelihoods for our associates and at the same time supplying excellent help for our clients. Every placement we make comes with a money back guarantee.
The passion I had for Remedy Staffing resulted in two awards. NAWBO’s Business Woman of the Year Award in 2008 and in the same year, ITB’s Woman of Influence Award. Was I surprised and honored! My staff has also nominated Remedy Staffing as the “Best Place to Work” the last 4 years in a row, and we have been a finalist in the Wells Fargo Copper Cactus Awards 3 out of those 4 years.
The business has slowly and steadily grown and in 2011 I am honored to have Joy Deehan, my office manager become a co-owner. This frees me up to concentrate my energy on sales and marketing. The staffing industry is once again experiencing a rebound now that the economy is slowly showing signs of improvement.
I was born and raised right here in Tucson and I am a proud graduate of Santa Rita H.S., Class of 1994! I continued my education at Pima Community College until 1996 when I made the move to Park City, UT. As a Medical Assistant I worked for a pediatrician as well as a general surgeon for two years before making a switch into property management. After five years in the business, and some strange events, I took on the role as the Operations Manager for Gart’s Sports (aka Sports Authority) and embarked on a career path in Human Resources. Finding my niche, I studied courses in Human Relations and Business Operations. Then in 2005 I was asked by the owner of Remedy Staffing, Jayne Henninger, to return to Tucson with my husband and aide in running her business as the Branch Manager. In June 2010 I received my Professional in Human Resources (PHR) and in 2011 stepped into the roll of Co-Owner with Jayne Henninger. For the last several years I have truly enjoyed working with a variety of different people, tackling many different tasks, and gaining a sense of true gratitude and appreciation for helping both clients and employees out of tough binds. It is my intention to continue on this career path for years to come.
