About Adrienne

Hello, my name is Adrienne. I've been a caregiver for over 7 years, beginning first as a certified nursing assistant, and now most recently as a registered nurse. I've worked in many settings, including skilled nursing facilities, home care, hospitals, and even a jail! I also have experience with all ages of the lifespan, from babies to the elderly. I've always loved working with people, and nursing has allowed me to interact with them on a more personal and deeper level. I enjoy what I do and plan to continue in my nursing journey through further education and experience.
