About Tamika

I am a bubbly fun loving person by nature. I enjoy helping people, and outside of that I enjoy spending time with my husband family and friends, especially my two adorable grandkids. I became a caregiver because I know from personal experience how people truly need a loving supporting nurturing person in their life in a time of need or crisis. After all of the years I spent as a caregiver I decided to finally become state certified, which I did in 2016. After becoming state certified I decided to take it a step further and take some RN classes. Life is beautiful, everything is working out great! Please note. I have a clean and clear criminal background along with excellent verifiable references. The reason my background is not posted is because I did not wish to pay a fee. I will always submit my background upon request, and my background can be easily verified by the control #. I also have a state issued drivers license, which happens to be my profile pic. I thank you kindly for taking your personal time to consider me as a candidate for care in you or your loved ones life

After a career in teaching special education, I am ready for a life change. Last year I was able to moved back home to Pittsburgh from Harrisburg, PA to take care of my mother, who was suffering from COPD, since both of my daughters had graduated from high school and left for college. I was divorced and wanted to return to my family. At first, I looked for another full-time teaching position, but since I missed the beginning of the school year, and maybe my advanced age, I was only able to find work as a substitute teacher. At 55 years old and in this stage of my life, I have decided that I would better be able to help individuals through a one-on-one relationship, rather than a classroom of 25+ children. My experience taking care of others includes being a mother, daughter, and granddaughter. My mother and I lived with my grandmother until she passed away at 93, taking care of her, so that she would not pass away in a nursing home. Once my grandmother passed away, my mother became so sick, she had to retire at 70, and passed away 6 years later from complications with COPD and heart disease. I spent my summers taking care of my mother, and came home every weekend for years, until she died last year. When thinking about a career change, I became convinced that I could help myself, and others, by providing companionship and helping with personal care as well as domestic duties. My education is in teaching, rather than medical, so my opportunities are limited. However, I am willing pursue additional professional development to gain the skills needed to help others, as I am helping myself. My personal achievements that I am most proud of are my grown children. Jeanne, 21, attends Temple University for business, and Jacqueline, 18, attends Penn State for music. I look forward to their futures, but continue to miss the family who raised me. This is why I am seeking employment working as a caregiver.

I am grounded in Christ with strong moral values. I believe this is not just a career; but my calling to serve others as I serve God. Whether it's spending quality time with your love one or providing care; but I truly try to make a difference . I am an independent contractor (private duty) CNA .........I can't imagine doing anything else; my work has given me a deeper sense of purpose in my life. HEBREWS 13:16 Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
