About Sofia

Although I have always had a natural ability to help others, I became interested in caregiving and the healthcare field after taking care of my uncle who had cancer. I understood the importance in providing quality care for those in need. As a certified CNA, being passionate in what I do, responsible, empathetic, and self-less are the qualities I am proud to carry. An accomplishment I am proud of is going back to school to pursue nursing and maintaining a high GPA.

Sofia has been very attentive to my mother's needs. She is regularly talking to her and making sure that she has what she needs and wants. She has brought her some treats which were unexpected but appreciated. I am pleased with the concern she has shown for my mother.
