About Darlene

Because I care, I enjoy what I do and my job is still fun the different personalities makes it that much interesting and the history that goes with each person makes it personal. I realized that every one has a story to tell and I love listening. I enjoy being able to be an extension for the person l work for, that extra pair of hands or that extra set of eyes whatever it is to make their life a little bit better. My most proudest moment was learning how to drive. I alwas doubted that I would ever learn how to drive but 22 years later I'm the best driver in know. I'm the kinda person thats a cheerleader l believe that my only barrier s are the ones that I create for my self. So l tell my self that I can do it, or that or I can make it happen and I do. But I also incourges people a round me to at give it your best try.
