About Valerie

I have always enjoyed caring for people. I became a caregiver because it was second nature to me. I like being a caregiver because it allows me to meet wonderful people and I enjoy hearing their story. One of my personal achievements was being able to care for my brother and father when they were transitioning through hospice. I took pride that I was able to make them as comfortable as possible towards the end of their life. My brother had AIDS and my dad had ACL Leukemia. It was a challenge but I soon grew to understand that I enjoyed helping those in transition. I was a late bloomer, getting my B.A. in Psychology at Counseling at 32 and finally getting my CNA so I can professional care. I look forward to being able to help those in need of my services.
