About Matt

My health care career started caring for my father who struggled with the debilitating effects of Parkinson's disease. Six years later, I decided health care was something I was good at, enjoyed, and found rewarding. I went to school and obtained my CNA license. I worked several years at Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Skilled Nursing Facilities. I have worked with several CareLinx families providing compassionate support and reliable care.
