About Karina

I became a caregiver as a job offer at first, then I just fell in love with the fulfilling feeling it gave me to help others that need caring for. I love working with the elderly for many reasons, they are funny, I've learned some things from them, the stories they have to tell are just amazing and so much more. I am patient, compassionate, willing to learn and I have lots of love for my job.
