About Jodie

Howdy, I've been a nurse for 26 years. I've cared for a wide variety of patients in the hospital and in home health. I left work to care for my parents until they passed. I enjoyed caring for them and would like to provide that level of care to others. I find caregiving to be one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. The opportunity to work one on one with someone and help them stay in their own home is priceless.

    Nov 1998 - Feb 2016
    Memorial Hermann
    I started out on the skilled nursing unit providing direct care to a wide variety of adult patients. For example, some needed wound care or IV antibiotics and some were there for physical therapy. I moved from there into home health coordination. Here I made the arrangements for all home health needs before the patient left the hospital. I instructed patients how to use their medical equipment before they left the hospital.
