About La-Toya

I've been a caregiver for 14+ years. I have always had an urge to care for those who were in need. I believe everyone deserves to live with the dignity we are all entitled to. I see people not just clients. I am CPR and First Aide certified, fully insured with a safe vehicle, and a clean driving record.
