About Andrea

I am a very positive person, I love helping others and taking care of anyone and everyone. I am a mother of 6 beautiful children and I have 2 boys that have passed away. So taking care of others to my full potential and even beyond warms my heart. I don't believe I decided to become a caregiver, I believe I was born to help others... it was a gift given to me. What I Love most about being a caregiver is the bond and trust you develop with each other. One of my personal achievements I am highly proud of is being a wonderful mother and wife and still be able to continue my education and be a positive role model in their lives... never giving up, no matter how hard life gets.
