About Kimberly

Hey! My name is Kimberly. I'm 32 years old. I served 8 years in the Army. A year after getting out I started working at a state hospital (mental hospital) in Kansas. This was something I had never done before. I was placed on the geriatric unit. I LOVED working on this unit! I loved getting to know each patient and building a rapport with them. I truly enjoy caring for people. I enjoy sitting and talking / listening and getting to know them. I believe as a caregiver the patient should be treated as you would want your own family to be treated. I am proud of what I have done in my life this far. With being medically retired from the military and working at the state hospital. I have of coursed worked other jobs but, I'm most proud of those. I appreciate you looking at my profile!
