My name is Sharon. I have alot of experience in being a caregiver. I love getting to know my clients and building a relationship with them. I always find fun and interesting things to do and freebies out in the community to experience. I became a caregiver 20 years ago when I became a foster mother. I saw a tv commercial asking for fostercare parents to give a safe place and open heart to a child in need and my heart just melted my eyes were filled with tears.... I went for the training and got certified right away. I am trustworthy, dedicated, and patient. I enjoy knowing that I'm making a difference in someone else's life. The feeling of giving back fills my cup!! I'm also involved with many community service groups that ranges from special Olympics- Fostercare camp counselor- to prison retreat serve trips. During the summer - I completed my internship with NWSRA with the zumba class and the cheerleading team.. it was alot of fun and a good experience for me and the team. I'm most proud of besides my awards for creativity and Employee of the year, but also when I go to work in a group home, the clients get so excited to see me because they know how much I care about them and they know I will have fun things planned for them to try.. they won't be bored when I'm on the shift.

I am very passionate when it comes to taking care of others. Ever since I was a teenager, I knew in my heart that helping those in need was my calling. I started nursing school in college and then went straight to work at hospitals, nursing homes, and at the comfort of people's homes. I am an advocate for the Alzheimer's Association, and volunteer as a caregiver support group facilitator. I have two children who are growing too fast, and a mother who is a cancer survivor who I took care of. Also, I am a lover of animals and have no problems taking care of them as well.
