About Sheryl

I kind of fail into this line of work because I think I am a natural caregiver, I love to care for every loving thing. I come from a long line of caregivers. I was a foster parent for over 5 years and I just loved it. I have been a daycare teacher. For the last 10 years and more I have been a " direct support professional", Working with the intellectually disabled. I am also certified in "Home health Management". What attracted me to caregiving is the instinct to keep people that have disabilities safe. A personal achievement I am proud of is about a 50 year old woman who was not able to put together a 4 to 6 piece puzzle not even interested in learning how to put on a pair of socks, afraid to walk up or down steps but with patience and persistence she can do these things and is enyjoying learning new things.
