About Katherine

I am a great caregiver because I have taken care of mother for as long as I can remember. She has a severe case of Multiple Scerlosis and it continues to progress. I love people and building relationships. As I studied Communications at Wake Forest University, I realized my passion is helping people. My grandmother also recently passed away from Alzheimer's disease so my patience and dedication to her furthered my desire to be a care taker. I can work in Charlotte or Winston Salem.

My mother
My mom has had Multiple Scerlosis for 32 years and I have had to take time off from Wake Forest University to come help her. She is my inspiration and when I can help her, make her laugh and forget about her chronic illness, it brings me such joy. I have given her shots, administered medication and taken her to countless doctor appoints.

It is my nature to be a caregiver. I have always been predisposed to taking care of others. I have a great attitude and a lot of energy. I helped take care of my father who had a brain disease, my cousin who had ALS and I worked in a hospital as a CNA - it was a natural progression to move into caregiving. I enjoy making life easier for others when possible and that is why I continue.
