About Rayna

I am great at what I do because it comes from the heart. I find reward in the intimacy, trust and rapport gained from a complete stranger in trusting their well being with me. The place that is sometimes to hard to open up to our loved ones because it exposes a vulnerability is shared and nurtured. I am entrusted with this responsibility and gift. I started providing one on one care in 2006 just for extra cash in the hospital where I did patient registration. My past experience in customer service allowed me to convey my inner smile while defusing and resolving issues. But being a comfort to a terminally ill or a mentally distraught person changed my life. It changed my focus and I became interested in more meaningful things. Since I started doing home care I recognized my ability to connect with diverse groups, generations and cultures. It inspired me to take a course in cultural anthropology and become an interfaith minister. I now volunteer in Hospice giving massage and Reiki and aspire to be a psychiatric nurse practitioner so I can counsel. I recently became a Licensed Practical Nurse.
