About Martine

I don't treat the people I care for as clients or just a job,I treat and care for them as family,with respect,compassion and dignity. I have worked in this field going on ten plus years,starting at age 15 teaming up with the special education class at highschool,my best friend whom I met in this class changed my entire life so I continued volunteering and working for various private homes,facilities and agency's from children,adults and senior citizens. I also feel that all the beautiful people I met and cared for along the way helped me to become the woman and mother I am today. It is truly and honor and privilege,and the experiences are priceless.
