About Susan

My first job as a caregiver was way back in 1985, my senior year of high school. I worked in a nursing home and fell in love with caring for those in their golden year. They have so much to teach us. I went on to get my Masters in Social Work and was a hospice social worker for 15 years. I took every opportunity to provide direct care- there's just nothing like it. :) I opened a hospice house where I recruited, trained and mentored CNA's. I had the best of both worlds because I was a certified medication technician and was able to enjoy a lot of 1:1 time with our residents. After several years, I became a director of hospice and have been in management for the past 7 years. Honestly, I'm tired of quotas, the pressure to meet benchmarks, etc and want to return to simpler times when I was able to love on someone, pampering them and doing my best to ensure they are as comfortable and stress-free as possible. I'm excited to get back to my roots and hope you'll give me the chance to prove how much I adore older adults and love to spoil them.

Hi! Welcome to my page. Let me first tell you alittle about myself so you can measure if I would be a perfect fit for your family/ loved one. I've been in healthcare for over 10 years working in different settings from Rehabilitation, Nursing homes, Chiropractic care to individuals with disabilities. My roommate in College has Cerebral palsy so I helped her daily with your needs. I'm very familiar with many other disabilities as well. I am happily married now just wanting to offer help for others. I understand completely wanting to meet me first before so you can decide if I would be a good fit. That's no problem at all. I have recently submitted a back ground check so I can show proof of my clean history. I genuinely love people and helping others is my passion in life. I have worked as a Medical Assistant for agencies in the past however I find this way allows the family to choose who they feel most comfortable around. I have graduated with a Degree in Human Services with a minor in Disabilities. I'm an open person so your welcome to ask me questions or concerns you way have about myself. Enjoy your day! **Available on Friday's after 12 and Saturdays **
