About Sherry

I have been a RN for 14 years. I worked as a Emergency Room Nurse for 10 years, Charge Nurse in a level 1 trauma center for 2 years,and a Circulating Room Nurse in the Operating Room for 1 year working. Prior to becoming an RN I was an Emergency Room Technician for 5 years. I also worked as a Certified Nursing assistant for 5 years on a medical/surgical unit. I worked in a Extended Care facility Center as a Certified Nursing Assistant for 2 years. I have my BLS, ACLS, Adult and Pediatric trauma nursing certification. I also obtained Six Sigma at the hospital I worked at. I am also certified in Crisis intervention prevention. I am also certified with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). FEMA has reaffirmed a dedication to serve in times of crisis. Over the past 25 years I have worked in home care. I knew they were going to be short term assignments so I worked them due to me currently working full time. I found that I have a passion to care for individuals in their homes. My motto is the client is the center of all I do. If your looking for a caregiver that can give your family member the highest quality care, then I am that caregiver
