About Kennitha

I am a compassionate, caring and trustworthy person. I am a consummate professional with a great work ethic. I have elderly parents that receive care so I know the traits that I look for in a caregiver. I have always had the desire to help others. Helping others improve or maintain a good quality of life has always been fulfilling and satisfying. My greatest personal achievements have been graduating from college with honors, advancing in my career and taking care of my aging parents.
