About Hope

I recently moved to California from South Dakota after receiving my Bachelors of Science degree in both Biology and Physical Science. I have several years of experience caring for a range of people including the elderly and disabled. I provide compassionate and thorough care to all of my clients and ensure that they receive care that exponentially improves their quality of life. Dignity and respect are at the forefront of the care I provide and I am able to think critically and quickly under stress. Caregiving is such a wonderful career because I have the ability to ensure my clients' physical care needs are being met and their mental and emotional wellbeing is thriving. I still keep in touch with several of my past clients in South Dakota via handwritten letters and I often times have family members request my services for their loved ones after I meet them for the first time. Being a caregiver is such a fulfilling and gratifying career because I have the direct ability to make someones quality of life the best it can be.
