James Jenkins’ Story

     First Approach EA/ Worksite Wellness, LLC  was developed by Chief Operating Officer, James Jenkins’ desire to enable positive change in the lives of employed military veterans and their families along with small business.  In his own words, James tells us why this is necessary and how it all began:

     “Most individuals make three career changes in life." After active military service, (honorable discharge). I became the first black American marketing and sales junior executive at the New York City Children Market. I had a featured article in a Women Wear Daily. 

     Moonlighting as a freelance media person covering music and event photojournalism, I built a strong relationship with several agencies. It was around this time that my mother became ill with breast cancer so I started studying medical and nursing books. I believe knowledge is a tool for curtailing the burden of illness and that’s how I was able to cope with such an unfortunate situation.

     During the mid-1980s, I noticed many Vietnam Era veterans were becoming homeless. By the time the Gulf War started, it had become an epidemic. Prompted by the Department of Veterans Affairs Marine veteran who was counseling veterans.  I was asked to become a rehab intern. I obtained clinical skills and used my background in business to help my fellow veterans.

     I have since worked in the private and government sectors protecting the civil rights of disabled veterans. As a forensic case manager, I have also worked with local, federal courts, district attorneys offices, and private attorneys. Passionate about anything I do, I went on to become an AFGE local employee assistance case manager. (EAP Manager) New York University spotlighted several graduates of their School for Professional Studies. I was one of those individuals.  Model of Success.

     After 911, I enlisted in the Division of Military and Naval Affairs Army Division as a non-commissioned officer/behavioral counselor, disaster relief until my honorable discharge in 2013.”

Now COVID-19  Emergency.
