I strive to deliver excellent individual care to both my client and their surrounding environment- keeping both clean, organized and comfortable. Strong assessment skills, training and experience allows me to determine, with the assist and input of the client and family support, exactly what the current needs are, and then provide effective solutions and specific care that fits the client and their situation.

Learning about the amazing wonders of the human brain and body has been my life's endevor. If I don't know something I will research it and learn about it.

Most of that time I was a licensed Respiratory Care Practitioner. I have work with geriatrics to neonates, from Post open heart intensive care unit to the Emergency Room and everything in between. I have extensive training respiratory diseases . I try to provide the kind of care I would expect for my children or mother or father. Loving compassionate care is something everyone deserves . I am a fierce advocate for people getting the care they deserve. I enjoy knowing that in some way I have made someone's life a little easier that day.
