About Terilynn

I became a caregiver because I love people and wanted to assist them in a healthcare setting by providing them with quality care services along with care and compassion. I love most aspects of my job. Everything from meeting and getting to know new patients to assisting and providing their care. A personal achievement I'm especially of was finishing my Associate's degree. I'm hard working, genuinely care about helping others, and have a very diverse employment background.
