About Kathy

I became a caregiver because I can give people the care and support they need to be all they can be. I love helping people, making sure that the life and very existence of someone is better, because I am in there life is very important to me. I am most proud of my accomplishments as a life counselor for the youth. I'm a patient and flexible person and always ready to go that extra mile.
