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.

    I have been a CNA for 10 years, and have worked in all different situations in many different facilities. I aspire to go further with my nursing degree, and eventually, hopefully become an RN like my mom. I enjoy being a caregiver because it gives me a sense of purpose, I enjoy helping people. Many life lessons held dearest to my heart, came from the facility where I worked my first 2 years as a CNA. I currently work PRN for an agency based out of Indianapolis. Although I am through an agency, I have been steadily picking up at a facility in Franklin for over 5 years. I am searching for a PRN or part time option closer to home. I look forward to hearing from you!
