My name is Colleen and I am 38 years old. I have two wonderful kids. My son just turned 18 and my daughter 13. In short I have been a caregiver as a mother for 18 years and babysat other kids on and off. I have also worked for ResCare as a caregiver for the mentally handicapped. I have worked the last 2 1/2 years as a CNA caring for the elderly. I enjoy helping others meet their needs and getting to know them. I have an Associates of Applied Science Degree and am a certified Phlebotomist, certification in Dementia Care, and a CNA. I am extremely proud that I graduated with honors. My next goal is to complete the schooling to become a RN.
