ABOUT US: MEET THE FOUNDERS

Anita and Jennifer decided to put their people skills, industry knowledge, and passion for helping people to good use by forming A HOME AWAY FROM HOME in early 2007. They are committed to being the best at what they do everyday, every time.

Jennifer Button is a native Californian and has lived in Santa Monica since 1987. She earned her B.A. in French, Business and Anthropology studying in France and California. After much international travel, starting a clothing import business from Bali, Indonesia, selling gold jewelry in Florence, Italy, and working at a casino in Lake Tahoe, she got serious and moved to the desert to study at Thunderbird, The American Graduate School of International Management, in Arizona where she received an international MBA. She then spent 15 years in the international logistics field in Los Angeles. Now, Jennifer LOVES helping families find solutions to their beloved seniors’ needs, which she has been doing now since 2003. “You always hear it and it sounds so corny, but truly helping people is so personally gratifying. It feels great to be able to help so many wonderful people when they are faced with difficult situations. I LOVE what I do!”

Anita Barnum Anita originally hales from Redondo Beach, California and moved to the Palos Verdes Peninsula in 1993 where she resides with her family. In 1987 she earned a B.S. in International Business and worked in the Publishing and Recruiting fields. Later, in 2009 Anita went back to school to obtain an A.S., degree in Respiratory Therapy. She currently splits her time between A Home Away From Home and Respiratory Therapy at a nearby hospital. “It’s both an honor and a privilege to assist families at this critical time in finding the right environment for their elderly loved ones. There are many facilities/homes for our elderly population, but finding that special one that will provide the level of comfort and care they are accustomed to can be a daunting task families are suddenly thrown into. I look forward to helping families for many years to come.”
