About Chelynn

I'm a Pittsburgh native and I moved to Atlanta a few years ago. I love the city and don't plan on leaving. I'm a biology major and I intend on continuing on to PA school. I have a passion for medicine and helping others, I've always had a job working with the elderly since I got my first job at the age of 16. The work is so rewarding and I knew from a young age this is what I wanted to do and I would do anything to get my foot in the door. Before college, I obtained my CNA license and became a caregiver/home health aide. I have cared for clients with a plethora of different needs and requirements. I come highly recommended and would even give some families I've worked with as a reference or companies I've worked for. I'm a hard working, punctual and loving employee. I understand that most families bring me on board during their most difficult and challenging times. I understand and accept my role and try my best to do all I can to put clients and families at ease and make this transition into a new phase of life as easier and seamless as possible. I have a clean driving record. Up to date TB test, child abuse clearances and FBI criminal checks and fingerprinting and will release the information upon request.

I believe in delivering quality of life for seniors and clients of any age! Showing compassion through sincere listening and being present for the clients I care for is a top priority. Through home visits with various agencies, live-in care, and working with an Assisted Living Center my combined services to the elderly have helped me thrive in the industry of caring. In the realm of younger folks, I drove a school bus for years and taught home schooled children including my own. I taught a class on self-empowerment based on the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series too. The classes I taught were an eye-opener and perhaps opened the door to a new way of viewing life. The life experiences I've had with Seniors who have become family to me and ultimately my friends has given me much more than I could have possibly conceived of giving to them! I found that with kids, being present and seeing the beautiful gifts they have inside always brought those gifts out with the acknowledgement. The services I've provided are most assuredly a soul's calling! Senior care and working with younger folks has been a perfect fit with my desire to make a difference with others, and the kind of career I totally enjoy! I have a knack for understanding human nature and the needs of the heart and naturally, I learned this through my own life experiences. We all are truly one when it comes to matters of the heart and what this life means! Applying the knowledge of our oneness is what the care of others is all about. I'm seeing my own reflection in the hearts of those that I serve in this type of work. From that seeing, I give the best of who I am to others! Importantlly too is the fact that I am CPR and First Aid Certified and have over 20 years experience caring for Seniors.

I am a 37year old CNA and mother of three,I became a caregiver because I love helping others and caring for those who can't perform or need assistance with their daily activities. When I was a young girl my mother was diagnosed with MS and my siblings and I were responsible for helping her with her daily activities and from that moment forward I knew that was my calling. In the past I have taken care of several loved ones and others until they're last moment here and thats what I feel like I am here to do, its my passion. I love being able to make a difference in someone else's life and make them happy.
