About Barbara

It is very rewarding to love and help care for others. Everyone needs compassion and companionship. Especially the elderly. They deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. The personal achievement I am most proud of is being part of a growing ministry where I was taught so many values like doing everything with excellence. I also had the honor of directing an all ladies choir where we went to different churches and sang songs and give testimonies. I am mature, responsible, caring, patient, easy to get along with and love to do my job well.
