About Laura

I am a caring and compassionate young woman who is seeking a position as an in home care giver while awaiting my nursing license in CA (expected date Sept - Dec). I am from Manhattan Beach. I am seeking a part-time position in which I can help you or your family member with your daily needs. I sincerely enjoy doing this work, as I have gotten to meet some truly amazing people in the past, have heard an uncountable amount of beautiful stories, and get to spend quality time with those wiser than myself. I love to cook (especially vegetarian meals), exercise, and I love to bake so hopefully your family member can enjoy the fruits of these. I am trained in nursing which has given me knowledge and experience with many ailments and disease courses. I am awaiting my nursing license in California, which can take months. After this I plan to apply to local hospitals. This process can take weeks to months as well. I realize that this could be inconvenient for you as a client, as once I am hired at a hospital I would no longer be able to work with you or your family, but if this would work for you then I would hope we could make a perfect fit.
