About Kara

Caregiving is a natural facet of who I am and has encompassed all areas of my life. It is with joy and a heartfelt desire to serve that I thank you for taking the time to allow me to introduce myself today. Having grown up with a sister suffering from brain cancer, it has been a position dear to my heart. So closely touched in this regard, I have learned much when it comes to comprehensive care, both on the front line and behind the scenes. I have worked as a patient care administrator and in social work as a case manager, working within various roles in this aspect; from direct care, outreach, crisis response, healthcare, educational, and hospice services to many managerial aspects. Honor, commitment, trust, and compassion, you will find here. Complete confidence in ascertaining that your loved will be treated as mine. Thus, it would be my pleasure to bring my strong desire, passion, and expertise in coming alongside you and yours, and those entrusted within our care. The pleasure is truly mine. Kindest regards, Kara Cordell * *
