About Kathy

Hello. I am an LPN, seeking to be a caregiver. I recently took care of my mother who was fighting a bout of depression. I realized how valuable being with her every day was and how effective working one on one was! Now that she no longer needs me there everyday, i would like to find other opportunities to work with someone in need. I am a mother of four grown children and married for 30 years. I have always loved taking care of my family and others in my nursing career.
