The reason I joined Synergy (home health care), was to be a companion to residents that may not have that or any type of care as they used to. Knowing that they don't get to see their loved ones as much as they want to, I feel even closer to them because I feel like I can be that person for them-someone w ho is close to them, cares for them, provides safety, and to really listen and have interest in them.

Lastly, my personal achievements that I'm proud of happens at Clark Lindsey and with a client I used to have.
