About Mary Lou

I consider myself a detail oriented person with a big heart. I had my first thought of wanting to be a nurse back in 1999 when my grandmother fell ill and I helped my mom as much as I could at the time when I was 15 , I saw how the nurses and the care staff attended to my grandmother it left a warm print on my heart, One of the last things I told her before her passing was, "I wanted to be a nurse and help other families as much as I could. I have learned so much since then about caring for others and even found myself assisting in emergency situations as a good Samaritan and although it took me almost 2 decades to finally go for the dream, life has taught me to not give up and eventually the calling has always been within me, I am now currently enrolled in nursing school, and I am expected to graduate April 2020. I currently hold a BLS certificate and i'm also a Certified Medical assistant. I have two beautiful boys who are 14 years apart and family togetherness is one thing I hold close to me.

I started by taking Family leave from my job as a Bookkeeper, to care for my Father. I thought at that point 5 years ago, hey I would like to do this for a living. Two years later my Father passed away and I lost my job and began caring for my Mother. At that point I decided to go to school and become certified. Received my CNA in 2013. Have been working since then and love what I'm doing. I am caring, dependable, fun, positive and energetic. I am a team player and can also take the lead. I love to cook, bake and juice. Interested in healthy living. Love walking, music, traveling and especially my family!
