About Lanette

I chose to become a caregiver because it is one of the most rewarding jobs a person can do. I have a passion for putting others first. When I see someone with an intellectual or physical disability able to lead a happy, safe and fulfilling life it makes all the challenges along the way worthwhile. I am willing to make small changes to my everyday life to make major beneficial changes to someone with a disability. I love being a caregiver because of the joyous and grateful feelings I get when I see a patient positvely respond to the enviornment and care that I have provided. I am very proud of my work ethic. I get things done fast but to the best of my capabilites. I am reliable, loyal and I enjoy coming up with better solutions to problems. A fact about myself is that in the next ten years I see myself as a Physicians Assistant.

    I'm a new member of the Wichita community. My husband and I moved here from the Manhattan area where I worked as a para educator for 9 years. Needing a change, I worked toward my CNA,CMA, and HHA certifications. I have worked in Memory Care, Assisted Living, and Home Care and Hospice all of which I loved. I have an early work experience as an EMT,(no longer lisenced), and years in phlebotomy. I've also worked as a CNA in a surgical center in various areas of the building. I spent 1 1/2 years after we moved here, recovering from shoulder surgery and working in a preschool center while getting situated in our new to us house. We have two daughters, one is married with a 4 yr old and 8 month old and the other is a Jr in college at Bethel. I grew up a farm girl, spent valuable time with my grandparents, and have been involved in many activities myself and with our kids. My family has always come first and I have always worked jobs that would allow me to live and be in their moments as they were and are happening! We are total hands on grandparents to our grandchildren when needed and possible. I love flea markets, refurbishing furniture, I have my own picture painting site, yard sales, shopping, and being in our yard. My heart and soul are extremely down to earth and when I enter a clients home, they are what matters while I am there. Their comfort and happiness with my work, long after I leave, is important to me until I see them again.
