About Sharon

" I am a caring, enthusiastic, hard working, and dependable LVN. I provide quality, skilled care and compassionate nursing. I love caring for my patients. I have enjoyed the fast pace of working in a busy Internal Medicine & Cardiology office and I have also enjoyed the quieter, slower pace of in home healthcare, and the experience running flu clinics for the past few years.""I have recently become an Independent Nurse Provider." I decided to become a nurse and care for others, after caring for my mother for 10 years, she then passed away. I needed to fill my time with something that would be satisfying . So I decided to become a nurse and provide the same care as I gave my mother.

Hello, Although I have a degree/career in the operating room assisting surgeons with surgeries..........I have found my passion in making a tremendous difference in the quality of a person's life with caregiving. I volunteer with the Healthcare Ministry at my home church & with my friends' nonprofit "Serve The People" in Santa Ana. I am a blessed mother to 4 amazing adult children and a grandmother x2. (so far) My grandparents played a tremendous role in my life (whom I also cared for at the end of their long lives) and I have always been very comfortable & fond of elderly, and geriatric people. They love me as well & my kind & loving spirit. I have found it to be an absolute joyful and rewarding experience to be a Caregiver. We are called to take good care of the Widowed & Orphaned. My passion and love for them are evident. (of course, passionate about animals too)! I am healthy,,strong, vaccinated,, devoted, honest, compassionate and extremely patient. Very detail oriented and trustworthy. I am hardworking, dedicated, dependable and professional.. I enjoy caring for someone as well as doing activities together. Depending on the person and his/her interests. I enjoy connecting and listening to amazing stories that the person I am caring for wants to share. It is very important for me to stay engaged with the individual and showing them that they matter, rather than just having the TV entertain them. I believe if possible, it is important to keep the person socially connected and out in the community. (Varies with each individual depending on special needs or limitations) Thanks so much for taking the time to read my profile and I look forward to caring for you or your loved one. *Member of Surgical Technologists Association *CPR/BLS Certification *Surgical Tech *Medical Assistant *Caregiver
