The Bailey Group

Welcoming Account Executive Jenny Persson

We are excited to welcome Jenny Persson to The Bailey Group team as an Account Executive. Although she has always worked in Human Resources and Operations (17 years to be exact), Jenny is thrilled to now be on the insurance side of things.

Take a moment to get to know Jenny in her own words and you’ll see why we’re so happy to have her on our team.

Before The Bailey Group

I attended Stetson University in DeLand, Florida for a year in 1996 before transferring to George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. There I studied Physical Education and minored in Spanish. My original plan was to be a middle school P.E. teacher but those plans quickly changed when I was offered a job in Human Resources at a local company by a friend. The rest is history! Fun fact: I played 2 years of Division 1 basketball.

Discovering The Bailey Group

First of all, who hasn’t heard of The Bailey Group if you live in and around Saint Augustine Beach? I think the first sign I saw when I pulled into town was Mark Sr.’s big surfing billboard! I met Sabrina Abare shortly after through our kids’ sporting events and started serving on the YMCA Board of Directors with Mark Sr. a year later.

Fast forward 2+ years and here I am! Since moving here I have only heard positive feedback about The Bailey Group. They are always involved and giving back to the local community. I am honored to be a part of such an amazing group of people!

Outside of The Bailey Group

I try to spend as much time with my family as possible!! I enjoy playing and watching basketball with my hubby, Jon, and my kids, Bradley (14) and Hannah (11)! I have historically enjoyed coaching them as well but this winter will be my first season as a spectator since they started playing.

My son is a great basketball player and will hopefully be making his middle school team this week! I love watching him play on his many teams. My daughter is an amazing dancer and I love watching her dance with her dance team in Saint Augustine Beach!

We love movies in our house and have family movie nights often! I live very close to the beach and try to stick my toes in the sand at least once a day (so lucky)! I love all things Disney and we’ve had annual passes since we moved here, although we just purchased annual passes to Universal Studios as well (sorry Walt!).

I work out religiously at Orangetheory Fitness. Last, but not least, I enjoy running races (5K to half marathons) although I don’t do them often enough. My favorite race so far is the Disney Princess Half Marathon event in Disney World. They just do everything right!
