About Carrie

I am a newly Registered Nurse who has solid communication skills for a variety of patients. I am extremely flexible, express empathy, compassion and attention to detail in many different situations. I have four years of CNA experience, CPR certified and PEARS certified (pediatric life support). I was attracted to being a caregiver after caring for my own family members and felt the need to help more people in my community. I finished my schooling in Peoria IL, at Methodist College and completed my internship in the ICU at Methodist Hospital.

I am compassionate, kind and reliable. I understand the importance of seniors remaining in the home they love and worked hard for . I have worked in homecare but also in assisted living. In either setting it is important for a caregiver to remember the elderly need to be treated with respect and dignity.
