Our Featured Professional Spotlight:
Tauni Koch, from The Jefferson Independent Retirement Living
A Personal Portrait
Tauni Koch is from the great North West up by Mt. St. Helens in Washington State. She grew up on a 100 acre farm showing horses in 4-H, volunteered at nursing homes through junior high, high school and college. She was a cheerleader in high school, loved skiing Mt. Hood, Sun Valley and boating on the Columbia River with family. When Mt. St. Helens blew in 1980, her small farming town was hit hard with ash and everything closed down. As a high school student, it was very exciting as school was cancelled for several weeks while ash was cleaned up.
Tauni graduated from Montana State University with a Speech Communications degree and her second language is Sign Language. She proceeded to get certified in CPR and went into teaching hearing impaired children and eventually moved to Los Angeles where she taught for a while. She met her husband in L.A. at Farmers Insurance Home Office where they worked and asked him out on a date. He said “yes” so 4 months later they got married and now have 3 great adult children. Two of her adult children are here in Madison and one lives in Portland, Oregon. They moved a lot with her husband’s job, from California to Pennsylvania and Baltimore, Maryland. Eventually they ended up here in Wisconsin, where her husband grew up, and now have been here happily for 15 years.
She started working as an LP officer at JCPenney where she kept the store safe by apprehending shoplifters and working with Madison Police at the West Towne Mall. She said it was a blast and she won awards for the most apprehensions in their district. She also volunteered at the Jefferson while working at JCP and knew THIS was what she was meant for! She loved working with seniors and was then offered a Sales job helping seniors find a new home here. She has been here over 12 years and started with 68 % occupancy and grew to 100%. She loves what she does for and with clients at the Jefferson, and if they aren’t the right fit for someone, she will give them suggestions of where to go because searching for senior living can be daunting and very emotional for the family.
Tauni developed and continues to host a monthly networking breakfast here for local businesses. She loves to help our local business folks make connections to grow their business, and share all that the Jefferson has to offer. You can come in anytime and taste the chef prepared meals for the networking breakfast!
