About Garnet

I am an alumna of Long Island University in New York. I majored in Nursing and Psychology. I have worked as a Counselor with The Center for Family Support and Birch Family Services serving individuals that has Mental Disabilities. I have worked with Healtronix as a Wound Care Consultant Therapist. I have over 25 years of experience caring for the sick and elderly in hospitals, nursing homes and residences. The care I took of my clients made their family lives much easier. It was always like the light at the end of the tunnel. It brought me solace and peace. Then I realized how much I didn't just like caring for the sick and elderly but the gratification I get from helping people in general. My passion to care led me to help people in all aspects of healthcare, especially the terminally ill. My services are not limited to the actual hands-on of caring. I help patients to promote Activities of Daily Living. To add, I enjoy providing Mental Support for my patients and their families. This passion to care stems from an accident my father met. At age 9 you are helpless, but you are able to decipher a few things and it was then I decided that I want to make a difference in this world helping people.

My Personality's is being motivated no matter what situation it is and staying organized for mating what is needed for the day.
