About Britney

Hello everyone! My passion for healthcare started in middle school when my dad got sick and was diagnosed with terminal cancer. When he passed away in 2007 I knew that this career was meant for me. I received my CNA License when I was a senior in high school and started LPN school in 2012. Five years later here I am and I still love and am passionate about what I do! I enjoy helping others and making them smile. The biggest reward I get from being a caregiver is seeing the person that you are caring for get better whether that is mentally, physically or emotionally!
