About Lakendra

My name is Lakendra Jackson. I go by Kendra. I am 32 years of age and have 3 children, ages 13,8, and 3. I currently attend an online program with The College of Healthcare Profession(CHCP) to receive my associate's degree in Medical Business and Administrations. I plan to further my career and with great hopes, be my own boss one day. I am due to graduate in December of 2018. The medical field is where my heart belongs. I have a genuine love for helping others live a healthy life. My heart beats stronger for the elderly. My passion is to make living in the "old days" as comfortable as possible. I love conversations with people of age, for they have they best stories to tell! My favorite part of being a caregiver is GIVING BACK! And assuring them that it is now time to still be independent in all ways possible, but also knowing that when they can't do for themselves, I CAN!!!!
