About LaVonda

I have a lifetime of experience being a caregiver beginning with my own daughter who had a brain tumor at the age of five and the again at ten. After surgery I was required to be with my daughter full-time to take her to therapy and help with her overall recovery. I found during this time that giving unconditionally is one more rewarding gifts I could give. I love bringing a smile to a client's face or discovering a new fact about the person's life. I love learning new things and I'm always open to life and all that it has to bring facing each day with a smile and the hope that I can make someone's life brighter by being a part of their day. I have worked with two other companies in the past as a caregiver as well. My personal and professional experience has given me the skills I need to be a giving, compassionate and knowledgeable caregiver.

I became a caregiver because I want to make a difference in someone's life. I am very caring and compassionate. I strive to always improve and push farther. I am dedicated and treat each patient like they were my own parent and quickly become a family favorite.

As a care giver I find the most important attribute is compassion, the second being willing to apply love as if it were your own family member. I have been in the business of care giving for over a decade and I take pride in the service I provide. I am a people person and love to talk and am always interested in new business ventures.
