About Ashley

Hello, My name is Ashley and I have worked in Healthcare for a wonderful twelve years. I obtained my Certified Nursing Assistant Certification when I was eighteen years old. I have always wanted to help people in any way that I possibly could. I wanted to work in Healthcare for a number of reasons, to name a few, I'd like to start with being influenced by my Aunts. One is a Nurse and my other Aunt was an EMT for the local ambulance service. I was raised by my grandmother and father and was taught morals of repect and caring. I like the feeling of being able to make a difference in someone's life either in Emergency situations or end of life care. From A to Z care is what I can provide for your loved one. I also have several certifications that is very beneficial to caring for your love one. I have my Cardiac Arrhythmia Certification (analyzing heart rhythms), CNA, Emergency Room Technician, EMT (5 years ago but not current), and BLS. I have worked in several nursing home settings, Hospital Floor settings (all areas of care), and 10 years experience Emergency Care. I have currently been off work for approximately one year and a half, after the birth of my daughter and I am looking to get back into what I know best without the long hospital hours. I love what I do and I would love to be part of your loved ones quality of life. Hope to hear from you soon. Have a wonderful day and thank you for your interest in my profile /resume.

    Hello, y'all! Will start by briefly explaining my experience as a caregiver- I was a live-in caregiver to a very sweet 91-year-old lady for almost a year. I have also worked in an assisted living home, working with memory care patients. Lastly, I have worked as a caregiver with young people with disabilities and people that flat out need some help and companion care. I love this type of work and being a light in your loved ones day. I have been doing this for almost 7 years and have worked just about every end of the spectrum. I have my home care aid certification. I have lived in Seattle for the past 6 years but am headed back home to Kentucky :)
