About Tamara

I became a caregiver when I had to step in and take care of a family member, who had a stroke. I like the fact that I was helping someone get rehabilitated while experiencing a miracle happen right before my eyes. I've been told that there should be hundreds more like myself, from just about every and anyone I have worked for and with. It's great feeling to have when you can go beyond others and your own expectations and receive certificates and rewards on how much people love you for what you do for their families. I became a CNA in 1998 and currently hold my certification. I'm also a Certified Pharmacy Technician and have been for 9 years and counting. I am also a business women with 5 children and a husband
