About Jodie

I have always had important and wise seniors in my life. I had a maternal grandmother who live in my family home for 28 years. I loved spending time with her, learning to cook, play cards, watching our favorite shows, and showing respect and love to her as she aged and became ill. Through her, and other people in my life, I learned empathy and compassion. I wanted to help her and to let her know how much I cared for her. I wanted to do what I could to keep her happy and comfortable I believe I have a great deal of patience and I genuinely like people. I try to see things from their perspective knowing sometimes it is hard to ask for help. I am someone who you can count on to show up and to come with a positive attitude. I think the thing I am most proud of is raising three very kind and strong daughters. .

    I am a nice and patient woman, who likes helping people. I have over 12 years of experience as a caregiver. I lived and worked in Italy as a caregiver. I speak Italian and Bulgarian language. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is when I see that the care I give makes the person happy.
