About Yolanda

I became a caregiver because I possess a gift of love. People feel my energy and instantly connect. I like being a caregiver because I'm allowed to serve humanity which is my calling. My personal achievement I am proud of is working with individuals with disabilities. I am from Atlanta, have a college degree in Sociology from Georgia State University and I am CPR/First Aid certified
