About Mary

My name is Mary E Hersel and I sm 57 years of age. I have been close to caregiving work in one form or another all of my adult life. When I was 24 I worked in a memory care and rehab center in Wenatchee, Wa. Then later took care of my mother for 4 years prior to her death. I was the caregiver and my sister was the nurse. She had mobility problems as well as swallowing issues which eventually led to a feeding tube. I later tok care of a brother as he recovered from a surgery that led to a colostomy bag. My husband had a stroke a few years before he passed away and I took care of him thru that. During most of thi=ose years I was working in retail or waitressing, but after my husband passed I felt the need for something different and went into caregiving fulltime. Since that time I have been certified as a HCA in Washington state. I also took the studies to become a CNA but did not as yet take the state test. I have moved here to Las Vegas and am now hoping to continue as a caregiver.
