About Effie

I became a caregiver because I have a heart in hands and it’s very rewarding to know that I am making a positive difference in someone’s life. I like being a caregiver enjoying the opportunity to impact clients’ lives and make a difference to them & appreciate the chance to get to know the clients and their families and become an integral part of their lives. Personal achievements for me was to become a licensed certified CNA/Patient Care Assistant, earn my AA. BS & M.Ed in Counseling degree and to live life to the fulliest with the heart to always being kind to others. I am a very caring, compassionate, warm, loving, sharing & giving individuals that love people of all kind. I've worked for seven years as a Financial Aid Advisor in a state community college serving a very large population of diverse students from language barriers to cultural backgrounds. Its been challenging but well worth the experiences and opportunities to learn about others belief, ethics and morals.
