About Leslie

Hello my name is Leslie and I've been in the medical field for approximately 25 years now. I began as a CNA (certified nurse assistant) then working as a LPN (licensed practional nurse) also receiving a diploma/certificate in massage therapy. I now do home health care when I find find clients who match up with my skills and personality allowing me to more or less pick and choose these days where and who I wish to work for. I've worked nursing home facilities, ER in hospitals, hospice care for both elderly & the youth, facilities for behaviorial health & home health care live in & live out care. First aid & CPR certified. I would like to think of myself as a very caring, responsible, professional & loyal caregiver always putting YOUR loved one above anything & anyone else when I am on duty. I promise you will not have to worry yourself with the possibility that someone would ever bring harm to your loved one or put them in direct danger. I am very responsible and have wonderful references. I look forward to our meeting and I hope you and your family are safe and doing well right now with what our nation is under and going through. Thank you for reading my post. Be blessed
