About Regina

I've always had a great love for helping others even as a child. I'm very patient. I've been a licensed caregiver over twenty-six years. I love to make people happy and just to see a smile on their face knowing that I gave 110% caring for them. I always make sure that they're safe and comfortable while in my care. This is what I love doing.
