About Lindsey

Hello my name Lindsey, I'm a experienced medical assistant. I enjoy taking care of people that need day to day health and/or home assistance. I am the oldest of six children, so at an young age I was responsible for helping my mother care for my younger siblings. Later, after I graduated from Laurus Technical Institute's Medical Assistant Program, I continued to pursue career opportunities to care for the home and health needs of people. I am a joyous caring person by nature, so making someone else's life easier, either for you or a love one, is a job I will never get tired of doing. ;-)
