About Teressa

Hello my name is Teressa Felder. The reason I became a care giver because I always cared for my younger brother that has Cerebral Palsy. I love helping people and very good at it. I have 14 years in customer service and enjoy putting smiles on people face and earning their trust. I been doing home care for elderly , mentally behavior/health and very ill/sickly people. I had some clients that just enjoy the company of just having someone with a good spirit around them (companionship) . I know that I love my job so much and enjoy it I'm going to open my own business within the next five years. I enjoy cooking ,cleaning, and shopping for my clients because the end results I get a big smile. Having the ability to learn and interact with people is a blessing and everyone doesn't have that talent that is why I truly blessed. I do have my CPR AND FIRST AIDE certification. I also have my certification in Home Health Aide. I never had a client that was unsatisfied with my services or any of the companies I have been with and I have some recommendation letters . I have thank you letter from clients and companies for the outstanding work I have given them.
