About Chris

I have been working in an RCF that houses Mental Health clients. I absolutely love my job but seeking more daytime hours. I am licensed as a MA-1, to give insulin, and in First Aid and CPR. In our homes, we are responsible for every aspect of client care (Medicine, Ordering, Charting, Doctors Appointments, Speaking with family, pharmacies, and medical staff, housekeeping and meals). I love life! I am a positive person and believe the glass is half full! I try to infect everyone around me with the ideology that there was a blessing this morning when we woke up. We woke up! This character has helped me to help others. I would love the chance to make your special someone's day brighter. Have a blessed day!
