I am a great caregiver because I truly enjoy what I do, and therefore it shows! I could not ask for a better job than helping someone in need. It is the most fulfilling job in the world. After many years of doing assorted jobs, (including wedding and portrait photography) I finally found something that truly fulfills me, in every way! I really love it! Please call me for my current availability, as it can change!
I have a very easy-going, friendly personality; and I get along with most everyone, (which I think really helps me enjoy what I do!) I love all animals, so if you have a dog or a cat, I will make sure they are also taken care of as part of the family!
I enjoy cooking and keeping a clean home, and I drive, so I can take you to your appointments, shopping trips or meetings.
