About Marva

I am the daughter of a mom that suffered a stroke. I know firsthand how to assist by going through the entire process of caring for my loved one, my mom. The stroke was on the left side of her brain affecting her right side that resulted in lost mobility on one side of her body. The in-fart in her brain caused her the inability to read or write or even bath herself. She also lost vision in one eye and needed surgery for the other. I consider myself to be a patient and caring human. Although, my mom still needs some assistance, with my help, she has regained mobility and movement on her right side and without a walker. I did extensive agility and phonics work with her daily that I learned from the rehabilitation center and my earlier days of teaching. My mom is astounding all her doctors with her rehabilitation and recovery. I catch on fast and I can implement just as quick. I enjoy working with people and seeing them soar. I motivate and teach by nature. I was an educator for many years teaching 1st and 2nd graders, thus I understand patience and time yields results. Me in a nutshell, caring, kind, patient. Trustworthy I am, and I believe strongly in Karma. :) Trust is earned, let me show you that I can be a help to you and/or your loved one. All the best!

I grew up helping seniors I knew and have always loved doing so. I love being needed and feeling like I am making their life better, happier, healthier. My 40 plus years as a licensed Hairstylist has given me alot of people skills. I am an empathic soul and have compassion for people hurting or needing help. As I know, illness and aging is apart of life, if I can help to bring a caring, and comforting helping hand, I feel I'm doing something that is meaningfull.That brings me joy. I know GOD is using me in a beautiful way. I do my best to follow instructions given and make sure my clients needs are met. I stay focused on the job I'm doing. I'm adaptable . I am respectful and I expect the same in return. A personal achievement I am proud of is how I strive to continue to heal from adversity, grow personally and strive to accomplish the goals I set for myself. I am proud to be an independent contractor and entrepreneur for over 40 years.
