Who We Are

The Aloa Care Group was established in 2017 as an avenue to improve the health of our community.

We accomplish this by:

  • Seeking ways to reduce costs of health care provision
  • Providing education and training on health prevention and healthier behaviors
  • Establishing partnerships with community organizations to meet needs of vulnerable and under- served populations
  • To seek  funding sources to extend care modalities
  • Providing for medical staffing needs
  • To be of service to others, in any way possible.

Meet the Team

Dr. Jodi Lynn Kendrick

Owner / Administrator

Its my pleasure to announce the beginning of the Aloa Care Group! This company is the result of many years of planning and many nights of prayer! It was established with the main goal of improving the health of our community. I am anxious to begin this journey of service provision and bring on many employees who share my passion to give back and use their talents in our community. I am committed to bridging the gaps in health care needs by reaching out in all directions... identifying needs of children, adolescents, geriatrics, and families, and then creatively work to meet those needs.

I have been blessed to be able to provide nursing care in various areas for over 20 years. Some of my areas of nursing practice have included; Labor/Delivery Nurse, Community Health Nurse, School Health Nurse, Nurse Educator, Hospital Nursing Director, Home Health Administrator, and Professor of Nursing .

I obtained my BSN from Malone College in Canton Ohio, my MSN came from Radford University in Radford Virginia, and my Ed.D came from Walden University in Minnesota.

The Aloa Care Group is now my venue, where I will strive to be a Servant Leader to my Team members, while positively impacting the health of my community.

Hi There!

As the Operations Manager, I will have direct oversight of the business operations of Aloa Care Group. I will ensure the business is operating at its highest level of efficiency by performing periodic assessments to ensure the most cost effective services are being delivered. I will also serve as IT specialist; providing computer and software assistance and training for Aloa Care Group staff.

I have spent the past 16 years at Gulf Breeze Hospital working as a licensed Nuclear Medicine Technologist. I am very excited to find a new way improve the lives of people here in our community. It is our hope that this project will benefit the Gulf Coast for years to come.

Servant Leadership

At Aloa Care Group, we are proud to utilize the Servant Leadership approach while striving to meet our company goals and mission.

 As a Servant Leader, we are “servants first" – we focus on the needs of others, especially team members, before our own. We acknowledge other people's perspectives, give them the support they need to meet their work and personal goals, involve them in decisions where appropriate, and build a sense of community within our team. This leads to higher engagement, more trust, and stronger relationships with each other, that’s what Aloa Care Group stands for! 

Some of the key leadership skills you will see practiced here will include… open lines of communication to all members, listen to comments of others, use persuasions rather than positional authority, and conceptualize organization vision while balancing day-to-day focus. 

Here is a glimpse of the concepts related to this type of organizational management style. Most likely this is unlike any other company you have worked for before- I promise you will see amazing results based on our Servant Leadership approach-

Valuing people

People in an organization should not be used for the purposes of leaders, but rather valued and developed. Workers have an innate ability to know whether they are being valued and trusted. Leaders who value their people focus on the needs of others and how they can be met. Believing in and trusting their people enables servant leaders to find the true value in others. Servant leaders also listen to others. Listening non-judgmentally is one of the best ways a leader can show people that they are valued.

Developing others

Servant leaders believe that workers have both present and future value. Servant Leaders consider it their responsibility to nurture others toward achieving their full potential. People in any organization can be developed through a dynamic learning environment where the mistakes of others lead to new insight and are viewed as learning opportunities. They develop others by modeling appropriate behaviors and understand that people are developed through encouragement and other forms of affirmation. Servant leaders should recognize accomplishments and celebrate creativity.

Building a community

Servant Leaders value the different ways in which people work together. They are concerned with relationships and understand that people are more influenced by the quality of relationships than the accomplishment of tasks. Healthy organizations encourage team accomplishments that result in friendships. Servant Leaders celebrate and respect differences in gender, culture, ethnicity, and age, and encourage all workers to feel that they are valued team members.

Sharing leadership 

A clear shared vision empowers people to work toward the mission of the organization and the good of the group. Servant Leaders are aware that all people in an organization need to be recognized and affirmed for their contributions and value to the success of the whole.
