Hi my name is Natasha Riggins I am 22 years old. I started taking care of my mama at 8 years of age. she was born with a whole in her heart and was in and out of the hospital and needed a caregiver. caring for my mother taught me a lot of things about life and how to treat people. it taught me how to compassionate, loving and caring towards other people. And to treat people the way I wanted to be treated because one day it would be me that will need the help. I loved taking care of my mom so much that I decided to it professionally. After high school I went to Macomb Community and got Certified in Direct Care. I've did a lot of private care for my first two years. Which is when I got experience in bed baths/baths, changing, lifting, showering, and feeding. I've had several different clients, most of them wasn't family and they have change my life each and every one them. I love doing what I do because it put a smile on their face and makes there life's just a little better. And that along makes me feel better knowing that I changed some else life. I'm proud of myself for graduating from High school because my mother didn't get that chance so it was a must in my eyes to make proud.
