First and for most being a caregiver is a calling for me. I began my journey as a caregiver 11 years ago and I haven't looked back. I have always been passionate about helping those that are unable and being their eyes, their strength and their voice. I have found such great reward in being able to go through daily life with my client hand in hand. My mother was a caregiver and seeing her pour all her love and time made me very humble and taught me to pour just the same amount of love and time and patience with each individual person that allowed me to come into their lives and homes. What I enjoy the most is the personal gain and fulfillment when I go home, knowing I made a difference with the most simple gestures to the most difficult tasks. I strongly believe that it's not me that always makes the difference but the client that teaches me soemthing new. Learning about them and their lives and what they feel passionate for or simple enjoy doing makes me happy to be apart of.
