About Karen

I am very compassionate, honest and reliable. I have been an occupational therapist for several years and now I am looking to do something different. I love working especially with older adults and find they can be the best conversationalist and also a wealth of knowledge about life : ) Because of my professional experience, I am comfortable working with anyone who has physical or cognitive special needs. My hobbies are hiking, gardening, photography, and traveling. I am a Christian and an empty nester and l look forward to finding someone that will be a good fit and need my services.

I have a great personality. I am very dependable, patient, pay attention to detail. Taking care of family members attracted me to wanting to be a caregiver. What i enjoy most about caregiving is i like taking care of others, especially the one's that can't do it on their own or need some assistance. One of my personal achievements that i am proud of is starting college.
