About Suzanne

I have worked in heath care for 25 years, in many different aspects of care. I also have worked for FDA testing food products to assure safety, but always find myself back in heath care because I truly believe this is just what I was suppose to do with my life, I have a brother I take care of who I love with all my heart, I have taken care of high profile people and regular people like myself and I care for everybody the same, love and companion, I have three grandbabies that are as I tell them my sun shines, I believe everyone should be treated with kindness and dignity, often it's said stay detached for myself I find this hard because their family becomes your family and the client becomes your friend and also a part of your family. I just know I'm right where I need to be. Thank you.
