I am a caregiver and nurturer by nature. My Nana was an RN and has been my inspiration since I was a little girl along with my passion for helping and caring for others. I truly believe my passion is my gift and I intend to continue using it to better the lives of others by giving them a sense of security during their time of need. I am compassionate, gentle, patient and kind, but both strong willed and physically strong, willing and able to take on most any task to help people in need. I am happiest when I am able to make others comfortable and happy during times of need or just to be an extra hand o r along side for support. ... more
