About Carla

I became a caregiver to make a difference in special needs children and adults as well as the elderly. I enjoy being a caregiver because I have genuine empathy for those who need help in their everyday living situations as well as those who need help with their medication and daily chores or perhaps something simple as companionship and everyday outings in which I enjoy myself. A personal achievement I am proud of is being a single mom raising children that I am very proud of. Everyday I look to God to better my life as well as my children's lives in order to make a profound difference in other peoples lives as well. Prayer, faith and belief is my motto and I teach it to my own family in order for them to become the best at whatever and whoever they chose to be in life.
