Our "Family"

Jeannie Rudman

Executive Director

Jeannie brings a wealth of knowledge, compassion and humor to her role. She competently leads our corporate office team in day-to-day operations, maintaining regulatory compliance, quality improvement and member satisfaction. Jeannie supervises all departments to assure all operations keep the high level of customer service and care that Extended Family has accomplished over the years.​

Jeannie's favorite things include her time playing and snuggling with Jasper, her Boston Terrier! Her 2 sons, granddaughters and granddogs/cats live out of state, so she spends lots of time on FaceBook, chat and FaceTime! She and her best friend/husband love to cook together in her "spare time" and has been known as the backgammon champion of all time!!!

Jeannie received an Associate of Science degree in Medical Office Administration.

Jillian Lamper-Schoenheit

Scheduling Coordinator

Jill is great at puzzles, and that's a good thing, because that's what she does all day long. Jill fits the right caregiver with the right member on the right days at the right times. She's our scheduler. She makes sure all the caregivers know where they are going, she makes sure all the members are happy with their schedules and their assigned caregivers, and she makes sure the system has all the data it needs. This job takes attention to detail and patience, and Jill has an abundance of both. It also helps that she has experience as both an LNA and a PCA, so you can feel confident she understands home care from all sides.
Jill's Favorite Things
Spending time with her family and her dog, Charley; four-wheeling; camping; Lake Winnipesaukee in the summer; music
