My name is Jody Towey and I am the Westhills Village Home Health Director and Services Coordinator. I have worked at Westhills Village for 19 years! I was hired at Westhills Assisted Living in 1997 and worked as an LPN while I completed my RN degree. In 2000, I transferred to home health and worked as a staff nurse for 1.5 years until I was offered the director position. Prior to working at Westhills Village, I completed 9 years of experience working in other long term care facilities and have also worked with developmentally disabled children.
