About Cheryl

The reason I became a caregiver is because my mother was always sick growing up and I loved being able to take care of her and learn new things about the different diseases and how to pass meds and know what I am giving. I love the people I take care of we usually instantly develop a bond and from there coming to take care of someone no longer feels like a job. Well I am the first one of the three children my mom had to actually stay in college and try to obtain a degree in nursing like I always said I would. I now have a couple classes left before finishing up an associate in applied science. Well I have been in the home healthcare industry for about 15 years Istarted off when I ewas 15 and I am 31 now. I have had all kinds of other jobs but I have always returned and stayed in the home healthcare industry. I love the people and love helping them be able to stay at home as I have worked in a nursing home and have first hand seen things that I would never want my own mother to have to endure so there for I take my job serious.i am also attending llcc to obtain my nurse practitioner so this is my field, this is my passion I love what I do and I am very good at what I do.
