About Kathy

I became a caregiver when my children were very young. I could stay home with them and they had playmates to have fun with. Now I have grandchildren that have graduated from high school. Even the job I had with 7-11 had me taking care of lots of people all shift long. For the past 6 years we(my husband and I) have taken care of people with developmental disabilities as well as people with physical disabilities. 1 elderly man had both physical(polio as a child) and developmental disabilities. (He also had a sense of humor) I have recently done some elder care which I also enjoy. I have been married to a very loving, caring person for 14 years. He graduated from DU and was a CPA for many years. He now drives truck locally and, like a lot of people, mostly likes what he does.

    I am hard working, patient and compassionate. I am able to handle any situation that comes my way, while keeping my composure. I was attracted to this field of work because I believe in making the best possible use of what you have. Being patient and "passive" is not always viewed as a positive thing, but if I can leverage my personality traits to build professional relationships that are mutually beneficial, I believe that is a truly rewarding experience. I am a natural problem solver and that's what makes this job enjoyable for me. I like the fact that every day is different and brings new challenges that translate into learning experiences. I aim to learn as much as possible, at all times, regardless of circumstance. I am proud of the fact that I am able to remain positive and take something away from each experience I have in life.
