About Kathryn

Caregiving is what I have done most of my life. In their passing, I provided care, compassion, and empathy for my father and mother in law, and my neighbors father. Being a caregiver is a blessing for me. Being able to be a part of their lives and support them through this difficult time is a great feeling. I'm the mother of 3 grown children, Nana to 6 beautiful grandkids, and married for 34 years to my childhood sweetheart. I've worked in education and nursing home environment. The most memorable moments in my life were spent with my granny growing up. She was always my best friend.
