About Courtney

I became a caregiver solely because I love caring for others and because I'm great at it too! Ever since I was young I can remember always taking care of others and coming from a big family it was always something that was needed. I enjoy making others day-to-day lives go smoother with my help and whatever is needed I always go above and beyond the expectations! I have 4 years of experience working with the Department of Rehabilitation Services and also many years of experience working with children and adults with special needs!
