About Joanna

1. I became a caregiver initially because I started taking care of my Grandfather, it was right then and there when I realized that this is what I wanted to do as a career, rather in clients home or facilities. 2. I love the fact that I'm able to make my own schedule and knowing because of us caregivers our clients have the opportunity to live at home and still get the same care if they choose to do so. 3. my personal achievement is taking care of my grandmother for the last of her years, having my grandmother witness the once rebel of the family turn into a respectable, understanding, compassionate woman is by far my greatest achievement . 4. I'm a mother of one, I'm bilingual (Spanish) I actually love the type of work that I do, I finished school to become a funeral director however it hasn't been easy getting into that field.. My husband is in the united States navy which means we travel every few years.
