About Lisa

I became a caregiver after my husband became ill. He had a great caregiver during his first stay in the hospital. She was so kind and compassionate, not just with but our whole family. I wanted to give that kind of support to others. I am compassionate, a little stern, supportive, a good listener , fun and love to laugh. I am very serious about skin care and comfort.
