About Heather

I became a caregiver because I had such a strong passion for caring for people- especially seniors. After working with one Alzheimer's client I knew this was what I was supposed to be doing. I love the feeling I get when I know I made someones day a little better. I pay close attention to clients comfort and well-being. Getting to know clients and hear their stories about their past is truly a rewarding experience.

    I became a care giver because i enjoy helping others.I love being a part of someone's life that i can make a difference in weather it be to help maintain the quality of life they have and keep their dignity,or providing end of life care. I am focused on the person as well as their family. I am 1 of 5 children,I grew up in a loving christian environment where morals and values were strongly instilled. I lost my father at a young age and lost 2 brothers to complications of diabetes in 2014 and lost my mother April 2017 due to renal disease and cardiovascular disease and lost my grandmother July of 2017. I am married to my best friend of 22 yrs we have 4adult children and 2 precious granddaughters.I am very trustworthy and take pride in my work and again i take my work very serious. I have been a certified nurse aide since 1996 to the present.
