Colavria is proud to announce that Jennifer McCants has joined our team!  A Registered Dietitian, Jennifer will provide clinical oversight, evaluate policies and procedures, assist in regulatory compliance, and take on other special projects.

Jennifer comes to us from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), where she was most recently the Deputy Director for Health Facilities and Emergency Medical Services Division. Prior to that she was the Long Term Care Program Manager for CDPHE.  In all, Jennifer has worked in Colorado and Montana State Survey agencies a total of 20 years.

Jennifer’s accomplishments and interests include developing and implementing nutrition training programs, public speaking, and work as a board member to administer grants for resident centered projects in Colorado nursing homes.

“I was ready for a change,” Jennifer says of her decision to join Colavria after a career largely in the public sector.  “I am a big believer in person-centered care.  Being on the original board of the Colorado Culture Change Coalition was one of the most rewarding parts of my job.”

“I had gotten to know Mark and Colavria through my work administering contracts with the state.  I knew Colavria was one of the top providers in the state, and I wanted to work for the best.”
