About Kimberly

I have had the amazing privledge of being a care giver for 30 yrs. Starting when I was 16. I feel gratitude for having found my life long passion at such a young age, and to have maintained a constant joy in my service to others. I am constantly learning, whether its meeting new clients or facing new challenges, reading and putting into practice new therapeutic modalities, As health care evolves so do I. I am a confident, competant PCA who loves to laugh and joke, and find what works best for each individual client and family. I am down to earth, compassionate, low drama. As a PCA I specialize in Alzheimer's and dementia care and excell at End of life care.
