About Desiree

I loved caring for my elderly grandmother and became a Healthcare Specialist 30 years ago. My objective as a healthcare provider is performing tasks for recipients to maintain their health and well-being holistically. I am proud to say that many recipients I cared for has succeeded in their goals and sadly, but proudly no longer needed my assistance. I am a 55 year old woman very active in my church and I enjoy fellowshipping with other churches. Did you know that a happy heart makes a healthy heart? God Bless!
