About Karyn

My greatest quality (and this is hard to actually admit) is caring for others. It brings me great joy and humility to be in service of others. I have been caring for my children as a stay at home mother for the past 15+ years. It's been a selfless and learning time for me, but also a tremendous period of personal growth. I know that to be fulfilled as a person, I need to be helping, nurturing, or caring for others. As a mother, I've learned so many different skills that would carry over to Caregiving. I know that being a 'Domestic Manager" these days entails so many skill sets and I am confident that everything that I've taught myself over these past years would translate into the Caregiving environment. My proudest achievement is my boys. They are turning out to be tremendous young men with so many wonderful gifts. I have a need to help others in a Caregiving capacity. I love reaching out to both young and old. My favorite thing in life is to hear "someone's story". We all have one. And when I get to listen.... really listen and know a person and make a connection, well, that's what a good life is.

    HI am energetic,loving,patient and happy lady aged 27,Who believes in nothing less than hundred percent commitment and achievement.i believe that my client happiness and joy is very important and I always do all it takes to ensure they are happy .my greatest fulfillment in life is being able to see someone I work with satisfied and happy.I started falling in love with being a care giver when my grand mom was sick and we wanted her to stay with us thinking that would be the best decision for her and for Us but she get worse and finally me and my sister were at home and she begged that we go to her house and she really like it there ...then I understand and saw through her how vital and important is aging at your home, your comfort zone. And how it's important to have someone who loves and understand your need as u growing up. That was when I discover that I can put a smile on someone's face and with time I realized how making my client laugh changed their life' ready to offer my outmost service to your mother .Anytime you need help with any one in your house hold contact me.Thank you looking forward to hearing from you

    I have been doing Caregiver work since I myself fully recovered from a massive job stroke. I've worked with Agencies, at an Assisted Living place where I was paid CNA rates based on my own life experiences. Worked as a Personal Private Caregiver through personal references. I find being a Caregiver to be a very rewarding experience.
