About Nicole

I have been drawn to caregiving since I was 11 years old. I have always had an interest in heath, wellness, medicine and caring for others. I worked as a babysitter, camp counselor, activity director, residential counselor, autism therapy aide, hospital compounding pharmacy technician and home health aide. My knowledge of biology, health & wellness, leisure skill development, verbal behavior therapy, adapted recreation, medication compounding and administration have given me a well rounded approach to client care. My goal is to provide individualized care for the client in a familiar setting. I want to know as much about the person I am given the honor to care for so I can protect their dignity and earn their trust. This is the most important and rewarding work on earth. I choose to work in a home care setting so I can preserve my client's connection to family and friends in a familiar setting. I have a background in Biology and Bachelors Degree in Recreation and Parks Administration/ Therapeutic Recreation. I am certified as a pharmacy technician, autism therapy aide, CNA and GNA. My goal is to care for my own parents so I can keep them closely connected to their grandchildren and as active in the community as possible. Our greatest calling is to care for those that are either too weak or confused to care for themselves.
