About Melissa

I have been working in and interested the medical field my whole life. I used to work as an EMT in 2003 and then after my husbands military career I went on to become a Certified Home Care Giver for the last year. My drive in life is helping others and assisting people. I am a very compassionate person, I cared for my grandfather for several years so I know how people want their loved ones treated, with respect, dignity, and compassion. I enjoy my work and enjoy working with others and think that the elderly have amazing stories and insight to share. I am also CPR/First Aid/AED/Adult and Pediatric Certified through the Red Cross. I am also very patient, understanding, and motivated. I teat elders as I would want my family treated and treat others as I would want to be treated. I am 31 years old and a mother of 2 I know the meaning of homemaker and how to do it well.
