About Brandy

I do my best to maintain a positive outlook and attitude each day no matter what challenge arises. Im compassionate to others. I enjoy making conversation, cooking, animals, nature and music. I always put everyone I love and care about above me. I became attracted to caregiving while taking care of my grandmother. Being close to her my whole life has really shaped me into this career. Im somewhat old fashioned. I can't explain it, I've just always loved taking care of others. I enjoy the time i get to spend knowing and sharing memories with a client. Those small talks.. And the fact that they know they're not alone in their situation. Helping those who've always helped or taken care of us is a high privelege. Im most proud of my loved ones and taking care of my grandmother.

Started volunteering for Hospice when my mom was working for them when i was about 12 yrs old. Became very close with one woman that was on and off of Hospice for years, when she was coming to the end i went and moved in with her and her daughter to help with her care. After she passed away I went to CNA classes and was determined to give everyone the same type of love and care that i gave that woman and the peace of mind i gave her daughter.

I have taken care of my mother since a very young age. I love that I can make a difference in lives by simply treating others how I would want to treated. I have two Bachelor degrees but recently decided that I wanted to take care of others directly via nursing. That being said, I recently completed CNA and CPR training. I am a naturally caring person that loves history and personal stories.
