About Angela

Love and support for others is the heart and passion of my personality which is why I opted for a career in the healthcare field about 15 years ago. I have extensive experience in working with people with many different disabilities and understand that every individual requires separate attention with varying needs. I professionally carry out my responsibilities by exceptionally monitoring individuals for changes in condition and report the change. I am from Kalamazoo, Michigan and moved to Phoenix in 2014. I'm excited to share my knowledge, compassion and love for people here in Arizona.
