About Jessica

I am a recent graduate with my Masters in nutrition looking for a part-time job. I have extensive experience in the health care field. I started out caring for a client with Parkinson' s disease for live-in and hourly care. Over my years of experience I worked with clients of various diagnoses: Alzheimer/Dementia, Cancer, Parkinson' s Disease, Gluten Intolerance, Diabetes, Post-Stroke, Cardiovascular Disorders, Respiratory Disorders and more. During my work as a caregiver, I was promoted to a management position as a case manager due to my dependability, punctual, and efficiency. I worked as a case manager overseeing clients care by Interviewing caregivers, training caregivers to meet requirements for the Illinois Department of Public Health Services Worker 8-hours of required in services for the agency to maintain licensing, on-site caregiver training, conducted supervisory visits and more. I feel that with my experience I am qualified to make sure you/your loved one receives superior care.
