About Jody

I enjoy being a caregiver because I like making sure the client is taken care and providing that one-on-one connections for the client and to make sure family is at ease. I am very observant and great at communicating concerns. I have over 25 years of experience in medical assisting and LPN and I've spent the last 7 years in personal care with the seniors. I am personally proud that I was able to assist my father in law improve his health.
