About Nkese

I became a caregiver because it was something I was always interested in and also when my sister got diagnosed with Lupus I saw how much helped she needed and I knew this was what I was supposed to do. I like being a caregiver because I'm always meeting new people and seeing the joy it bring people who really depend on you. My personal achievement I'm proud of is being a Certified Nursing Assistant. I am a devoted mother and wife. I am reliable, punctual, and love what I do
