Jenny Griffis – Owner of Northwest NAC Training
Jenny Griffis has been owner of Northwest NAC Training for the past six years and was the director for six years before that. She has 18 years of skilled nursing experience and previously owned and operated Vintage Years Adult Family Home in Battle Ground for 10 years, starting in 2006.
Caregiving is in her blood: Both her mother and grandmother were nurses, and her interest in working with the elderly started in elementary school. She previously worked as a nurse at Rose Vista Nursing & Rehabilitation and Fort Vancouver Post-Acute Care (formerly Fort Vancouver Convalescent Center), as a nurse educator at Northwest Healthcare, and a Float Pool Nurse at Prestige Care.
Griffis holds an RN Associate degree in Applied Science Nursing from Clark College and a Bachelor of Arts in Social Science from Washington State University, Vancouver branch.
Personally, Griffis is a married mother of three children and enjoys “upcycling” garage sale finds for re-use and resale. She also participates in animal rescue, nursing them back to health, and re-homing the animals. Gardening, movies, reading, travel, and taking in sunny weather are a few of her other favorite pastimes. Griffis moved to the Vancouver area from Seattle in 1993.
