About Catherine

Good day! My name is Catherine. My daughter and I was in a major car accident in October of 2013. She was ejected from the passengers back window. It was a horrible expereince to see an 8 year old in that much pain and in need of so much assistance. Being by her side and caring and nursing her back to health made me think about how many other individuals were at home and in need of patient and nuturing care. She made me realize that helping people and being by their side on their journey to recovery is where my heart belongs. I decided to obtain my CNA license. My open heart policy drives me to help and give back to people and my community.
