I am a licensed Registered Nurse who has chosen primarily private duty for most of my career. I love being able to provide one-on-one care to patients and clients, developing relationships and knowing their individual needs and preferences. I have been described as conscientious, extroverted, and service-oriented. Social interaction energizes me, so it is natural for me to enjoy the company of others, especially those I can provide care for. I am attentive, careful, and enjoy the nurturing role. Finding ways to make one's day better is part of the care I provide. I have worked with children and seniors, and as a nurse have extensive experience with physical, medical, psychiatric, and dementia care. I am CPR-certified, and pet-friendly.

When my grandmother started getting older and she wasn't able to do the things she could do I helped her. She told me I would make a good nurse because I'm very caring. So from then on I've been in the health field ever since. I like the fact that I can help people and also help them to be able to still maintain their independence. That I have been able to help people and their love ones stay in their own homes providing care. I've been a CNA for over 10 years and I love what I do. This job has allowed me to be a better person and mother. My service for my life is to serve and help people anyway I can.
