About Erika

A compassionate and patient caregiver looking forward to spending time with your loved one. Hi, I am a recent grad from Southwestern University and have always had a passion for helping others. I wanted to become a caregiver as I have seen my own family adapt to caring for my grandmother with Alzheimer's. Caring for a loved one can be challenging at times but everyone deserves the utmost care as we age. I have a degree in Kinesiology and Psychology, so I will use my knowledge by keeping my clients engaged from doing puzzles, creating healthy meals, and encouraging movement or other activities that your loved one may enjoy.
