Community Hospice & Palliative Care Promotes Bertie Allender to Manager of Healthcare and Community R
Bertie Allender, manager of Healthcare and Community Relations, started working within the hospice field in 1991. She worked in-home healthcare, nursing homes, and most recently a regional director in hospice care before coming to Community Hospice & Palliative Care where she has been for the past three years.
Jill Gaylord, Senior Clinical Manager, graduated from Florida Gateway College in 2011. She worked as a registered nurse in many fields from long term care, medical/surgical nursing, and ICU before finding her home, six years ago, with hospice. Jill just celebrated her third anniversary with Community Hospice & Palliative Care.
