River City Six – Jenny Trebold
Meet Jenny Trebold, senior advisor at Oasis Senior Advisors (answersformom.com).
Tell us a little about your business.
Oasis Senior Advisors is a free senior housing service that assists individuals and their families in finding the right senior living community. We provide an in-depth consultation where we discuss things such as financial options, client lifestyle, and medical needs. Based on the consultation and our expertise, we recommend communities that we feel would be the best fit. We spend time touring a variety of communities with the family and help answer any questions they might have. Once a community is selected, we make sure the transition into the new community is seamless.
How did you get started in the business?
I worked as the admissions coordinator for a large skilled nursing and rehabilitation center for over 12 years. My favorite part of the job was when I got to assist seniors and their families, so joining Oasis allowed me to focus all of my attention on this.
Tell us a little about your family.
I grew up on a farm in a small town in Iowa and I have a twin brother. I’ve called the Omaha area home for over 20 years. My husband and I have two children, ages 10 and eight, and currently reside in Gretna. We have a six-pound Morkie dog named Cooper.
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
I enjoy going to see a movie with my family or shopping.
What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know?
I love the outdoors. I actually used to work as a park ranger’s assistant in Iowa, where I learned many interesting things, including how to drive a dump truck, tractor, and skid loader. I met some of the most interesting and kind people in this position.
Who inspires you?
My husband and my mother. My husband always sees a positive perspective in every situation, and my mother is one of the strongest people I know.
What is your favorite quote or the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
My dad used to tell me, “Keep your chin up and smile.” I think about it all the time. A smile can make a huge difference in someone’s day.
If you could choose only one descriptive word to be remembered as, what would it be?
If you had a theme song, what would it be?
“Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” by David Lee Murphy and Kenny Chesney.
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
The ability to heal.
If you could choose any other profession to be successful in, what would it be?
I would love to be a registered nurse. Nurses care for people in their most vulnerable states. To this day, I still remember the nurses who cared for my father over 20 years ago. I also remember the nurses who cared for my mother after she had two strokes.
Which talent would you most like to have?
The ability to play the violin.
What is your favorite movie?
What is your favorite TV show?
I’m not sure I should admit this, but…The Bachelor.
