About Michele

I have many years experience dating back to 2003. and with many skills and experiences to go along with it. In my past I used to teach Special Ed for Palm Springs Unified but in 2003 my mother was diagnosed with Matastasized Breast Cancer and at the time of her diagnosis she was her 98yr. old ailing mother's(my grandmother's) sole caregiver. I resigned from teaching to do what my heart needed to do and that was to care for them both and see them through their journey. It was at that time that i found my love for caregiving and felt that it came so natural to me . I then continued my education within the field and got my degrees and certifications to be a registered Home Health Aide for the state of California. So if your looking for someone that is dedicated, experienced , and dependable than you have found me . I have MANY references and or current employers/agencies that can answer or give you my history and job performance information .
