About Kathy

I have become a caregiver because I enjoy working with people and need a part time income. I like being a caregiver because of the independence as well as listening to the stories and history the elderly have to share. I could listen to their stories all day. My most important achievments are 8 years in the US Naval Reserve as well as 10 years for a contractor for Ford Kentucky Truck. I'm divorced, I have 2 adult children and 1 teenage grandson. I love to read, play games on the computer and when the weather is good, go camping. My grandmother lived to be 99 years old, I think that is when I got interested in caregiving. I have lived in California and Hawaii but I was born and raised in Kentucky.
