About Kristine

I am a very caring, dependable, hard working and honest person. I took care of my mother for 20 years so I know how important not only to the client but also to the family to have the right person. After she passed I made it my mission to care for others. I have been doing that for the last 7 seven years. My most satisifying job was to take care of a husband and wife who both had Alzheimers. I took over their care and all household and financial responsibilites. I spent my working life in accounting and also at Elkhart General Hospital as an admitting secretary so I am familiar with medical situations.
