About Marykatharine

I started working with the elderly when I cared for both of my grandma's one which had mesithinoma and the other had many strokes and required full care. I worked in a nursing home for awhile after I obtained my certified nurses assistant certification , however sincethen I had children so I can no longer work 12 hr shifts which is what most facility schedules are. My favorite part of being a caregiver is knowing I am helping make someone's life better even if it is just being good company and making them smile. I havedone many things in my life such as collage or my certifications that I could be proud of , however some of the things I take most pride in is the kind person I have become and how im raising my daughters as a single mom and im raising them also to be kind , giving, honest and helpful girls . Im a hard working single mom one of my daughters has a mild handicap both of my girls are superstar princesses and they are my pride and joy
