Born in Boston! In 1991 my husband Fred and I moved to Tucson from Connecticut. We purchased Tucson’s Remedy Staffing franchise in 1992. At that time the staffing industry was the fastest growing business in the US. We had found our niche.
We had many great years in the business. When I unexpectedly lost my husband, I took over Remedy, our dream business. His abiding belief in being an active part of the community lives on in the Fred Henninger Fund at the Tucson Children’s Museum. Every year we give a donation in the name of all our clients to the Tucson Children’s Museum, which entitles 20+ challenged families an annual membership.
I poured myself into the business which occupied me 24 hours a day. I love what I do. We love finding livelihoods for our associates and at the same time supplying excellent help for our clients. Every placement we make comes with a money back guarantee.
The passion I had for Remedy Staffing resulted in two awards. NAWBO’s Business Woman of the Year Award in 2008 and in the same year, ITB’s Woman of Influence Award. Was I surprised and honored! My staff has also nominated Remedy Staffing as the “Best Place to Work” the last 4 years in a row, and we have been a finalist in the Wells Fargo Copper Cactus Awards 3 out of those 4 years.
The business has slowly and steadily grown and in 2011 I am honored to have Joy Deehan, my office manager become a co-owner. This frees me up to concentrate my energy on sales and marketing. The staffing industry is once again experiencing a rebound now that the economy is slowly showing signs of improvement.
