About Destiny

I love providing caregiving services to those that would otherwise not be able to do so. The smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel I have done my job right. I have always enjoyed helping people and giving back to the community, along with the opportunity to impact clients’ lives and make a difference to them. I am proud of my personal ability to accentuate the positive while alleviating the negative as a caregiver. I currently have experience working with mental health, substance abuse, and individuals needing long term care.
