About Teresa

Learning about the amazing wonders of the human brain and body has been my life's endevor. If I don't know something I will research it and learn about it. I am most proud of the fact that I am extremely empathetic and compassionate.I tend to be quite tenderhearted and shed tears easily. I have 36 years plus of hospital and caregiver experience. Most of that time I was a licensed Respiratory Care Practitioner. I have work with geriatrics to neonates, from Post open heart intensive care unit to the Emergency Room and everything in between. I have extensive training respiratory diseases . I try to provide the kind of care I would expect for my children or mother or father. Loving compassionate care is something everyone deserves . I am a fierce advocate for people getting the care they deserve. I enjoy knowing that in some way I have made someone's life a little easier that day. I am very proud if the fact that when I worked at the Veterans Administration Hospital I made it possible for a gentleman who was on life support with ALS to go outside for the first time in 4 years. I also facilitated him in being able to speak to his wife through a computer . I am a little bit of a germaphobe so I like to keep everything around my clients -clean and tidy . I am an advocate for the underdog. I love animals. I love flowers. Everything about them, looking at them, growing them, smelling them and putting them in beautiful vases everywhere in a house. A single flower can bring a smile to everyone.
