About Melissa

I became a caregiver because I love helping and caring for people. It brightens my day knowing I helped put a smile on someone's face. I've been a CNA for two years, but been a caregiver almost four years. I'm a mother to two little boys! I take pride in my work and love meeting new people!

    Some people become a Caregiver just to have a job. However, I became a Caregiver because I love giving a helping hand. I love my job and I do it very well. Throughout my 3 year's experience I have never had any complaints from any client's, employer's or family members.
