About Tenisha

Helping service disabled individuals is a passion that I hold greatly. To service of their everyday needs is rewarding. I get to the opportunity to show love to the person and people loved ones by helping them with their daily needs. My great-auntie passed away in February 2014 and She called me to come and live at her home and help her with her day to day needs, regretfully I was not aware she was as sick as she was, but in her sickness and her passing I was so grateful that she wanted me to be there for her and care for her day to day needs. I am hard-working, easy going, quick to listen and slow to speak. I want the chance to be able to show the clients the same gestures I was granted to show my great aunt.
