About Katherine

I am a naturally caring, honest and loving person. This is why this comes so easy to me. Nonetheless, I am reliable and careful when it comes to dangerous situations on the job. I am most proud of the moments when I was able to find a solution for the present problem at my work place. Like the moments when the pills where forgotten and we had to make sure that the next dose would not over lap the previously missed dose. I called my patients doctor found on the bottle and resolved the issue. I love spending time with my small dog and enjoy going on walks!
