FirstLight is About People
Home Care is Not a Career, It’s a Calling
We know your first priority when choosing a home care provider is finding someone you can trust and rely on… someone who will care for your loved one as you would, and as we would our own. We’ve been where you are, and this is one of the main reasons we chose to be in this business.
Jenny Verdin Vaughn BSN RN , Certified Senior Advisor Co-Owner & Director of Client Care
Jenny has spent the past eight years working as an Administrator for a skilled home health care provider. She has been a registered nurse for the past 25 years and has spent the past 16 years in the Greenville home health and hospice industry. Jenny is also a member of the South Carolina Massage Therapy Board and served on the Laurens County Safe Home Board for two years. After seeing an increasing need to focus on one’s needs and health as it relates to their home setting, it became her desire to provide a high standard of care to community members while also allowing them to remain as independent as possible in their own homes. When she’s not working, Jenny enjoys playing tennis, travel, football and spending time with her four children.
Jim Vaughn, Certified Senior Advisor President & Co-Owner
Prior to opening FirstLight Home Care of Greenville, Jim was the vice president and general manager of an electrical connector manufacturing company. He is also a patent holder and the winner of the Popular Mechanics Editors’ Choice Award. Jim has been a volunteer with Meals on Wheels for more than 20 years and has held various positions on the board. His involvement in the organization as well as his personal experiences with caring for his own parents who suffered from dementia and Alzheimer’s helped him to see the growing need for in-home, non-medical care options in the community.
