About Kathy

I became a Caregiver because I want to leave each life that I touch better than when we first met. I want to make a difference, to make things better, to heal the hurt and to calm the fears of my patients and their families. One of my personal achievements that I am very proud of, is that I go above and beyond for my patients. I am a very caring, loving and sympathic to my patient's needs.
