The Ottawa County Health Department has welcomed Jessica Spencer, of Port Clinton, to its nursing staff. Spencer began work Feb. 21, concentrating her efforts in the home health care division.
“I love the elderly, geriatric patients,” said Spencer, noting regular visits can often forge special bonds.
Diane Kokinda, Director of Nursing, said Spencer underwent an orientation period in which she was teamed with a fellow registered nurse. She now makes the health care visits on her own.
Spencer’s position with the health department is part-time. She divides her time between the health department and duties in the labor and delivery unit at Firelands Regional Medical Center in Sandusky. Previously, she also worked at Bellevue Hospital and Bay Park Community Hospital.
Spencer, a Milan native, is a graduate of Edison High School. She obtained her degree through Ohio University and continues her education currently through an OU online program.
Spencer and her husband, Mike, a math teacher at Port Clinton High School, have two children.
