About Karen

I absolutely love caring for those who cannot care for themselves. I enjoy being an advocate for the disadvantaged and those who are mentally challenged. First and foremost they are humans and should be treated with the same respect and courtesy as others. My last patient had many ticks one which was hitting on any objects, thankfully within two weeks of working with this patient he no longer hit on anything. I am most proud when a patient has been told about a limitation and we shatter it by accomplishing the very thing. I have worked in home health since 1999, dedicated to ensuring the needs of my patients are always first and foremost at all times, detailed oriented, and reliable.
