About Laura

I decided to become a Caregiver when I was searching for assistance with my parents and found that my options were limited by cost and availability. I enjoy being a Caregiver because it swells my heart and puts a smile on my face to make a difference in a family's life. Peace of mind when its your loved one is priceless. Maintaining Dignity and Self Respect for the client is #1 for me. I went back to school when I was 42 years old, graduated 2 years later with honors, a 4.0 GPA, Deans List and a Associate of Science Degree in Clinical Administration and Medical Assisting, following that up 2 years later with getting my Registration as a Medical Assistant. So many times I wanted to quit, I was the oldest person on campus, besides the professors, and I was even older than a few of them, but I stuck it out and I am so proud that I did. I love what I do, I'm very lucky.
