STEPS Home Care Co-Owner is recognized by the Business Council of Westchester as a 40 Under 40 Honoree
Congratulations to Jennifer Baukol, STEPS Home Care Co-Owner, who was awarded the "40 Under 40" Business Council of Westchester 2019 Rising Star Award. Jen is a native of Westchester and now lives in White Plains where she manages her female owned business while raising a family of three children all under the age of 6 with her husband, Peder.
A Westchester County native, Jennifer owns and operates STEPS Home Care along with her sister, Lisa Wade, and Lisa's husband, Shan Wade. A business professional with a keen entrepreneurial mind, Jen holds an MBA from Sacred Heart University and worked for more than 10 years as a Mortgage and Financial Advisor. When her grandparents were in need of a caregiver in Westchester, she and her sister realized they wanted to find someone who would care for them as attentively as they would themselves. She was looking for a better process to not only help find the right aide that was a good fit for her family, but also a business model that attends to the family’s multi-faceted needs as well.

About 40 Under 40
Held at the Million Air Club at Westchester County Airport in West Harrison, the awards ceremony will honor the county’s next generation of young business leaders from a wide variety of sectors. The 40 awardees are hand-picked for having helped shape Westchester County into the prosperous region that it is. Instead of traditional acceptance speeches, honorees have been interviewed and asked unusual and provocative questions. The results will be humorous, to say the least, and give unique insight into each individual. We can’t wait to find out which Superpower Jennifer wants to have or what tip she will give for successful networking!
Jennifer will receive her award during a ceremony on Thursday, June 13, from 5:30-8:30 pm at the Million Air at Westchester County Airport. Tickets can be purchased here.
