About Michelle

Hi, I'm in my 40s and have 3 basically grown kids. I started caregiving at an early age and found that I truly love this field. Helping people to stay in their homes and continue the life they are used to as much as possible is my goal. I have roughly 27yrs of experience with everything from companion care to advanced medical needs such as tracheostomy and feeding tubes. I am able to communicate well with Drs and can offer transportation. If you happen to have something I'm not experienced with I am more than eager to learn.
