About Terry

I believe in kindness as a great healer ,I believe no one should go hungry, no one should ever have to be scared or alone,and everyone has the right to dignity in their older years, or in a chronic, debilitating crisis. I love being able to make a sick person feel better, an older person feel special,I 've been proud of everything I've experienced and accomplished during my 26 yrs in the medical field, I know that I have made a pleasant memory in everyone I have come to help or paths I've crossed because I made them important, I've been their advocate, the smile on their faces and the tears of joy is what makes all of the hard work,long hours,and sacrifices worth it all !! Am privately bonded under personal insurance company with the AMERICAN NURSES ASSOCIATION Have a NCIC background and fingerprint check ran by the Cobb county sheriff's dept in Marietta available upon request
