About Kimberly

LPN with 6 years of experience in an acute care rehabilitation and long term care facility. CPR/BLS & AED trained and certified, IV certified and PICC & Midline line care trained, experience in wound dressing, wound vac, trach care, suctioning, foley cath care, respiratory breathing treatments, injections and medication pass. Having cared for my own mother for many years before her passing, and working as a secretary in the steel industry, I made a mid life turn and entered the field of nursing. I truly enjoy caring for my patients and even in the hospice environment, find joy in helping patients and their families to find comfort in a difficult time. At times there was nothing left for me to do but give comfort care and sit bedside and hold a hand...those moments touched me the most.

    I have been a caregiver for more than 9 years and “still love what I do”. I love providing home care services to those that would otherwise not be able to do so. The smile on their faces is overwhelming and makes me feel I have done my job right. I have always enjoyed helping people so I know I am doing the right thing. I have also worked in nursing facilities and hospitals. My latest job was in a rehabilitation setting where I enjoyed providing rehab services and watching patients go from 0 to 90 with therapy goals that helped them to return home to their families.
