About Jessica

Growing up, I was a caregiver to my grandparents, on and off for 5 years and loved that I had control of the quality of care that was given to them. In October of 2013, I became a Certified Nursing Assistant in their honor and vowed that with my new certification, I would give others the care that they immensely deserve. Since I got certified, I started working at a local senior care facility. I worked in the memory care department and I loved it! My only problem was I wanted to give each resident 100% of my attention and with over 20 residents, it's hard to be with each of them as mush as I'd like. I plan to get an in-home job to care for the elderly and be their right hand girl! I am a young, compassionate adult, I love to be outdoors, reading long novels, experiencing new places and care for others. At times I like to fill my days with never ending activities where I'm juggling one thing to the next and giving it my all. And there are days I like to enjoy the little things in life, like, a good cup of tea and watching the waves crash on the beach. I am very family oriented and love to spend time with them as much as possible as well as giving others a place in my heart where they are like family as well. It's great experiencing life but it can be even better with good company! I hope I can be that for my clients and their loved ones!
