About Sherry

As a small child I have always dream of becoming a nurse, I always loved helping my grandparents and just to see the smile on their face was priceless. Now as an adult knowing that I make a difference with people like just a simple smile or teaching someone about medication really make me love being a caregiver. Being a caregiver is more than providing care but also having empathy for them. My personal achievement that I am proud of is how how I started out as a nurse assistant and climb the ladder to become a nurse. I learn to respect every level of the health field. I currently just relocated to Georgia from Michigan, I am a Licensed Practical Nurse for 8years. I am CPR Adult & Child Certified. I have experience in Nursing/Rehab Center, Hospital and Home Care. I am a dependable, efficiently and competently individual who works well with diverse patient populations.
