About Marissa

I am your caregiver with a compassionate heart who has the ability to sympathize and empathize, who is kind in words and deed. 4 years experience in a private home care setting. I raised 2 grown boys on my own. I know I am excellent in taking care of people so I pursue a Medical Assisting course from Collin Community College in Plano year 2012. During my volunteer work with St. Jude Catholic Church's Visitation Ministry, I realize the overwhelming need for senior caregivers. I love the fact that I could make a living "caring" for elders, especially those who suffer Alzheimer's disease and those who couldn't simply take care of themselves. I am proud to be taking care of that special someone, and I am making a difference in their lives. They have taken care of a lot of people in their lifetime... they now deserve that SPECIAL CARE.

Marissa is not just a caregiver. Today Marissa helped organize my Mother's closet she removed about 100 empty hangers and I swear Marissa should add professional organizer to her qualifications. She also took my mother for a walk and helped iron many pieces of clothing and then cooked lunch. Marissa is a Gem I am so happy we found her through Carelinx.
