About Leah

I have both professional and personal experience in caregiving. I have experience with alzheimers and dementia. I've worked with clients with Parkinsons and other healthcare issues as well. I was called to this job after caring for family members and within my current graduate degree program have received a lot of information about the benefits of caregivers. I love helping people and working as a caregiver gives me the opportunity to help and be a companion for those who need it. I have a bachelor's in psychology and I am currently pursuing a masters in Social Work.
