About Kari

I am a dependable, caring and responsible individual. I went to school majoring in therapeutic recreation and enjoy working with all populations. What attracted me to this field of Life Enrichment and a caregiver is giving quality of life to those in need. The most rewarding part of this field is assisting seniors and relieving family members. Over 20 years, I am fortunate to have opportunities to work in a facility, park district and in home.
