About Odessa

I became a caregiver because I love to help people, which is what I like to do. I like being a care giver because it allows the client to stay in the comfort of their own home but still have the convenience of having a person help if needed. I am proud of achieving the goal of getting a college education 20 years after I graduated from school and keeping a 3.86 GPA throughout the past four years, along with making the Deans List 13 times and making the National Honors Society for adults continuing their education. I am a part time student who cleans houses, does elder care, and works with animals. I am 44 and have been cleaning hoses and helping people for the past 12 years.

    I have 20 years experience and I love what I do. I have great references and will provide those upon request. I began my career in the health care field by taking care of my grandmother and it became personal to me. I care for my patients as if they are my own family members. I am C.P.R. First Aid and C.N.A. certified. I have also worked with over 40 families to add to those credentials. I am very compassionate as to my performance and have never been let go by any client to date. I have a lot of experience with dementia and a whole lot more. I have also worked with children with disabilities and have done a lot of different kinds of care. I take my job very personal.
