About Desiree

I am a very loving and caring person. I became a caregiver because I love to help others and I enjoy being there for anyone in time of need. It gives me joy knowing I can be of service especially to those who are in need, I love to be depended on. One of my personal achievements that I am proud of is that I took the CNA course and completed it right out of high school also with being such a young single mother.

    I've worked in home health care for 15 plus years. I was trained by the state of California and worked for IHSS for 15 years. I've was a trainer for them ,and have attended several training sessions and classes. I was on the board for counsel on aging. I believe that everyone should have the right too stay in their own home and still receive care I love helping people. I didn't choose this profession it chose me. Ive worked with several doctors and hospitals and all types of disabilities.
