About Chinyere

Greetings! I am excited about caregiving because I like to help others in a meaningful way; two experiences that I found extremely rewarding were volunteering in the nursing home (as a high-schooler) and serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer. People who know me would describe me as kind, dependable, and patient. I would bring a high level of care and strong work ethics to working with your loved one. I have a background in practical nursing, currently work in public health, and seek a part time caregiver position.
