About Kristen

Hello my Name is Kristen, I'm a out going person and love to make that last difference in someone's life. I love to help others. I have always wanted to be a nurse even when I was a little girl. My heart went out to the elders. Over the years I have learned a lot of different things. The biggest thing I have learned was to listen to my patients whe they are talking. Some will share exactly what they are going though. Everytime I learn something from my patients I have heard many stories that has helped me to understand what someone else is going through. I love to do one on one care. For it helps me to really get to know the person I'm with and I can spot any changes in my patients that could either save a life or help a illness from progressing further such as UTIs I have been very pleased with the compassion and loving genital care that I can provide. I take pride in my work and making someone smile just warms my heart. I'm a firm believer that no matter what age you are or what your going through you deserve to live a safe and happy life for the last few years that someone has left on this earth.

I am a mother of three daughters . I have always been taking care of someone. When I was a teen I babysat and in my late teens I took care of my grandmother who was dying of cancer. I have done fill in work for my aunt who use to work as an in home aid caregiver. I have worked for two years in a chiropractic office working with older people. I enjoy being with people and learning from them and being able to help them to live their lives to the best of their abilities. That is what I love about care giving. It is not just a job but a way of connecting to other people and being able to help them and do it for a living. I am proud of being able to raise my daughters because I have been a single parent for the majority of their lives. I obtained my Associates degree while raising them and I am twenty four hours away from receiving my Bachelors degree in Christian Counseling and Caregiving and my daughters are my reason for continuing to get better as a person.
