About Monarch Gardens

Our Team

Jenny Shields

Executive Director

Dear Residents, family, and Staff

I am so excited to be part of your community. I wanted to tell you a little about myself.


I have been married to my husband for 21 years and we have 5 children (his, mine, and our). The oldest is 27 and our youngest is 16. We have 5 grandchildren with one more on the way ranging from the ages 3 months to 8 years old.
I have worked in health care for 15 years but have been a caregiver my whole life. I was the oldest of 4 children on my moms’ side and my sister had Cerebral Palsy and I grew up taking care of her and my 2 younger brothers.
