About Christine

I have over 3 years experience of senior care and over one year of experience with dementia care. I love to nurture and it is particularly rewarding when I get the opportunity to help those who have lived so much of their life and have given so much of themselves in that time. I love the close bonds and compassion that forms from caregiving, it doesn't feel like I am working, but instead just spending time with a family member. In my last job, I loved all the conversations we would have, she was a truly lovely, funny and wise person. I am CPR and First AID certified through the American Red Cross. I also am experienced with meal prep, medication prompting, housekeeping and pet care. In addition to being a caregiver, I am a freelance illustrator and painter and enjoyed doing art/craft projects with the women I have looked after.

I am very dependable. I am never late to work or any place I am expected to be. I am 20-years-old. I am from Nashville, TN, currently living in Athens, GA. I have an Associates Degree in "Health Sciences." I am furthering my career in Social Work. I want to be a School/ Family Social Worker. I enjoy being around children of all ages. My mom is a current Social Worker and she owns a Daycare in Nashville TN, where I was a former employee. In high school, I was a peer-tutor for special needs students. I helped the students with their work, helped prepare them for speeches. I also helped them reach their highest potential whether that's emotionally, mentally, or even physically. I am a wonderful cook. I love cooking home-made meals. If instructions are included and a family has a recipe, I don't mind giving it a shot! I am fun and energetic. Crossword puzzles? Walks in the park? I am for it all!
