I have always had a love for the elderly, starting at a very young age. In 1992 I completed my Registered practical nurse program, and worked as an Rpn in Canada for 18 years and as a health care aide for 2 years prior. I have been blessed to care for a wide variety of clients over the years but my main focus was clients with Alzheimers and/or dementia. In 2011 I became the resident care co ordinator of Brookdale senior living facility, in 2012 I worked at Pines of Clarkston assisted living facility as a resident aide, then promoted to administrator of Pines of Clarkston memory care. My latest emplo yment opportunity was as a clinical coordinator with Great Lakes caring homecare. I am very proud of all of my accomplishments in my career so far, each giving me valuable tools and experience for future career endeavors. I am a very compassionate, caring, client focused individual that takes pride in all I do. If you have any questions or wish to contact me, send me a message and I will happy to set up a time that we can discuss how I can be helpful to you and your loved one ... more
