About Colleen

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.

I have a passion about serving others and especially those in need and so I have found myself working as a caregiver since 2018 for different agencies. I am pretty good at listening and making sure my clients are comfortable and happy. I love traveling, learning new languages and different cultures. For the last 4 years I have been able to go back to school and completed my bachelor degree in Global and International studies and now currently working on my dual degree in the Master of Arts in philanthropic studies and in the master of Jurisprudence.

I'm a natural caregiver who attended and completed the Ivy Tech CNA program in 2002. I have worked in a different setting as a caregiver from hospitals, retirement facilities, and nursing facilities. Recently I've decided to get back into the rewarding field fulltime and finish my degree at IWU Marion. I have always had a passion for helping people, and it gives me great gratitude in doing so.
