There are some careers that require continuing education. Being a compliance officer for a private home care organization is one such position.
“My job consists of ensuring that my employer and its employees are in compliance with all Federal, state, and local regulations and rules regarding home care,” Jewel Brown explains.
The most difficult part of her job is “keeping current with various rules and regulations” and “staying current with rules and regulation by the Department of Health.”
But by committing her time and effort to stay on top of these regulations, Brown is ensuring that her organization’s clients remain safe and well-cared-for.
Although the position does have its difficulties, Brown finds it very fulfilling. Her favorite aspect of working as a compliance officer is “resolving conflicts and issues with home health aides and patients.”
This Woman of Distinction is very proud of the fact that she began her career as a home healthcare worker and worked her way up to her current position.
Brown says that a bachelor’s degree is necessary for the position; she earned hers at Ashford University. The most important things to keep in mind, she notes, are learning “the basics and having a willing attitude.”
She credits her success to having a “highly-developed work ethic” and her “willingness to follow up on issues and constantly keeping abreast of developments in my area.”
Brown’s drive and confidence are infectious. When asked to describe herself in one sentence, she replies, “I am a generous, thoughtful, respectful person, and truly a jewel!”
As dedicated as she is to her work, she is just as dedicated to her 24-year-old son, Dylan. She’s also involved in community work as the secretary of her block association and the hospitality coordinator for a group called the Real Action Community Democrats Club.
She’s also passionate about Brooklyn, where one of her favorite spots is the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
“It is a romantic garden with beautiful flowers and I find it a very relaxing place to enjoy nature,” she says.
Brown may love the peaceful oasis that is the Botanic Garden, but she’s just as fervent about the people of Brooklyn, especially “The spirit of Brooklyn people…‘Fuhgeddaboudit!’ ”
Speaking of spirit, Brown’s is strong, yet playful. She says that she admires Maya Angelou for “her height — 6 feet,” and how the late poetess “was received when she entered a room.”
But what Brown herself may lack in height, she makes up in stature.
“I want people to remember that even though I was 5 feet tall, my heart and caring for others were 6 feet of pure unconditioned love and compassion for others,” she says.
COMPANY: Scharome Cares.
CLAIM TO FAME: Collard greens — ha! I am also a dedicated mother to my one and only child, Dylan.
FAVORITE BROOKLYN PLACE: Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
WOMAN I ADMIRE:
MOTTO: Know better; do better.
