About Kathy

I am an RN choosing to work as a private duty caregiver. I have 36 years of nursing experience and skills to offer, in addition to a compassionate heart, meticulous attention to detail, maturity and reliability. I enjoy caring for elders in their home to enable them to be as independent as possible while remaining in the home they love.
