About Vanessa

Hello, I am a Board Certified Registered Nurse (not just a CNA) who has an innate sense of compassion for her patients as well as almost 10 years of experience in various fields of nursing. Seniors have always held a place in my heart but the tedious duties during my 12 hour shift never allowed me to fully take the time I wanted to with them. I used to sneak into their rooms and read to them or just hold their hands. You might be looking for simple senior care or have a loved one with needs which maybe a bit more complex... such as safe medication administration or transport to doctor's appointments! Rest assured that your search can end here with PEACE OF MIND! I am also available for Respite Care (with overnight options) I am a mother of two (both teenagers) so no callings for sick kiddos and hold a Masters Degree in nursing. I am available for meet and greets via phone, or in person! Please don't hesitate to call me!

I became a caregiver to be able to help someone in need as well as putting a smile on their face at the end of the day. I started out with assisting the elderly at the age of twelve and the person I provided care for was my great grandmother. I like the sense of satisfaction, confidence, and accomplishment when caring for people in need along with building new relationships with the client and their families. A personal achievement that I am very proud of is being able to give back to other who are in need. On behalf of myself and my Criminal Justice Association members we did a clothing drive for the Salvation Army we held the drive from April 24-May 1, 2014 we were able to collect lots of clothing for all ages and for females and males along with other household items all for families in need. I am a Criminal Justice major at Strayer University, I belong to the American Criminal Justice Association and I am also the vice president. I am a very outgoing person, I pay very close attention to detail when caring for others. I have been in the nursing field off and on for about twelve years if not longer.

I first became a caregiver when I started taking care of my aging parents. It was imperative to me that they were comfortable, healthy, and happy. I was educated in a lot of things but none of those things satisfied me as much as caring for people who couldn't properly care for themselves. I knew from that satisfaction that, being a caregiver and companion was a gift that I possessed. I feel a since of pride and accomplishment when my clients bond with me to the point that they only want me to care for them.
