About Lisa

I became a caregiver/certified nursing assistant for the love of caring for patients/people, in need, in the medical field. It's very important to me to give my best to the well-being of those in need of health care. There are many facets to care: personal, emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual. I believe in care with dignity, honesty, and respect. Even the cleanliness of living space and good nutrition is vital to good health. I treat those in my care as if they were my own family member. I was a CHHA for 5 years before working nights in the ICU at DKH for 12.5 years. Following that employment, I am now working nights for the past 6 years with WBH in the telemetry unit. I am skilled not only in nursing care, but also in the ability to recognize significant changes in someone's health status that would be indicative of immediate medical attention. I am a CNA, updated in certification, as well as CPR certified. I look forward to meeting you and together assuring the best in care giving to your loved one.
