About Whitney

I am a very compassionate and friendly person. I enjoy helping out in any way I can. I have always had a passion to bring joy to others. One of the things I appreciate the most about being a care giver is the connection I make with my clients. My clients become very close to me and I have many clients who have become life long friends. I am very proud of my EMT training and am glad that it has helped me in many situations in my field of work.
