About LaShaun

I enjoy providing exceptional healthcare for the aged, mentally and physically disabled. My background began as a Medic in the United States Army. I transitioned and worked as a licensed Medic for numerous of years providing emergency medicine, basic life support, advanced life support, ambulatory care, geriatric care, dementia and Alzheimer's care, amongst others to say the least. I'm also a licensed Assisted Living Administrator and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration. I have developed a genuine passion over the years for providing assisted living services for the elderly so that they may enjoy living independently at home opposed to living their lives in a nursing facility. With the amount of education, knowledge, and expertise I have gained along with the tools and skills I have, I am more than equipped to provide your loved one with the care he or she needs.
