About Katherine

I find it to be very rewarding, I enjoy learning the life and history of people. I have taken care of some remarkable women. When i learn about their past history and what they did, it humanizes them and interests me. I've assisted with Parkinson, Alzheimer, and dependent elderly clients. I'm a former Internal Medicine physician,with experience in a diverse group of diseases, and hospice care. Having experienced a serious illness myself I have a lot of empathy. Now that I'm in remission, I'm grateful to be able to give back and serve people who need assistance

    I am an AAMA certified medical assistant. I am currently employed with Scripps Health, and looking for in home caregiving opportunities. I am punctual, reliable, hardworking, and will treat your loved one like my own family. My mother had spina bifida and ESRD, so I am well versed in home health care and what it entails. As a CMA I am fully vaccinated (including the Covid vaccine) and CPR certified. I am particularly interested in night shifts. I am experienced in hospice care, memory care, senior care, and all aspects of assistance. I have a reliable vehicle and a clean driving record, and I am willing to help transport your loved one for errands, doctors' visits, and anything else they might need. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with honors from my degree program, and was hired immediately by the organization I externed with following my program completion, so that is something I'm really proud of! I have a huge heart for others and would love to assist your family.

    I try to stay positive & upbeat with my patients; it is hard being an isolated senior in our busy society., especially during Covid lockdown. With some I have been able to take them out for lunch, to a park or museum. I just spent 10 days looking after my 96 year old mother in Michigan so my two sister's could travel. I work well with Hospice staff, PT & OT. I am a good cook & like to shop and prepare healthy, good tasting meals, maintain a clean house!I am dependable! I started Caregiving in 2012, after completing my BA in Liberal Studies emphasis Psychology at Antioch University in Santa Barbara. I also have an AS in Art & Graphic Communication. I have also been an artist for many years. It doesn't always cover the bills, but I still do it because I love art. While at Antioch U, I strongly considered going on to attain a Master's in Art Therapy but by the time I graduated I had developed type II Diabetes. I received college credit for implementing & facilitating art at several day programs in Santa Barbara county. I moved down to San Diego to be closer to my son's in the Irvine & Buena Park area. I took a live in care job in San Diego and really love this beautiful area! When I first moved to Santa Barbara in 1973 I was employed as a nurse's aide at several hospitals and care facilities. I enjoy working with seniors. I am proud of raising my two sons into fine young men. I have been on a number of mission trips to serve in Mexico, Costa Rica and Uganda. I have a strong faith in God.
