About Carolyn

It was my calling about 17 years ago in August of 1995 and it seemed to stay with me. The fact that I met different people everyday because I was a come and go caregiver who went to peoples houses and did light cleaning cooking running errands laundry. I helped a lady when she refused my help and I convinced her to joined an agency because she desperately needed help she had no family and I felt sorry or her. I am compassionate and has a great heart and often put everyone else needs before mine.
