About Mary Ann

I have always been the caregiver in the family. I enjoy working with elderly and pediatrics. I'm a San Diego native, and enjoy life but at the same time getting things accomplished whether they are big achievements or small tasks. I worked for home health agencies for developmentally disabled elderly and developmentally disabled children in San Diego. I continued to work home health in Orange County until landing a stable position in Fountain Valley. My position however has me missing patient interaction and this is why I am looking forward to caregiving.
