About Debbie

My name is Debbie, and I have been in healthcare for over 35 years as a registered respiratory therapist. I have worked in hospitals and rehabilitation centers caring for adults, pediatrics and infants. I primarily worked with adults and loved it. However, after all the years of 12 hour shifts and heavy patient loads, I have decided to do something new. That is why I chose to be a caregiver. I still can enjoy my clients and provide quality care and have the time to do so. I am almost 62 years old and have been widowed for 4 years. I raised two boys who I am very proud of and recently became a grandmother for the first time. I am by myself so I have flexibility for my clients hours. I am a good cook , easy to talk to and very outgoing.
