About Kara

What makes a great caregiver is someone who understands what is the true meaning of a caregiver. To be cared for, an example is meeting a humans basic need. The need for attention, appreciation, affection and love. We are beings and we are social beings who crave a connection with others! I became a caregiver simply because it comes naturally for me, and I am fulfilling my life's purpose. I like being needed and also to give so it pleases me to care for others. My personal achievements over the years have been to become a nurse and I have worked as a C.N.A. For 15 years at the hospitals to gain experience in the many different fields of nursing. I have enjoyed the journey and have gained confidence in my abilities to be an exceptional caretaker!
