About Kathryn

I'm a Veteran who served in Iraq from 2002-2004 & was discharged honorably. Prior to joining the military as well as after, I worked with Adults as well as children with disabilities such as Autism, Bipolar, Parkinson's, Dementia, Diabetes, Cancer, Alzheimer's as well as Down Syndrome. I've also had experience working with the elderly, assisting in all basic daily activities as well as administering medications and keeping a record of each patient's charts. I also ran on the local ambulance as a volunteer, where I obtained my EMT license & attended a Vocational School for my CNA license. While in the Army I was awarded an Army Commendation Medal which is presented for sustained acts of heroism or meritorious service. For valorous actions in direct contact with an enemy without injury. I also received the National Defense Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon & Global War On Terrorism Service Medal. I also have a letter of recommendation upon request.
