About Patricia

I became a caregiver because I have a strong passion for helping others and want to make a difference in people's lives. I enjoy spending time with people and getting to know them. I am proud that after 12 years of working for the same company I went back to school to go into the field of nursing after I saw the great care a loved one received from the nursing staff at the hospital. I was born and raised in San Diego, I'm a single mom of 9 year old boy and I am currently attending school to become a licensed vocational nurse. In my free time I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family.
