About Regina

I started out as a volunteer Candy Striper at a Hospital in KCMO when I was a teen. I enjoyed working with people and helping them. This is what prompted me to get into this field. I went to A Vocational School my senior year in High School and took The CNA course and afterwards worked in a Hospital and later a Rehab Center. That started in 1975. I did PRN for some temp services. I later worked for the School district their in Missouri working with Children with Various disabilities and special needs. I did this for 10Years. I went on to work with Adults with Developmental Disabilities and have been doing that ever since. I have been a Direct care staff for a few agency's and have also been a Live in care giver for 11years which also had some supervisor experience. I recently moved to Houston In 2013 and have worked as a House manager for a company in Conroe Texas. I have worked as a direct cared staff as well. I enjoy being a caregiver because it is a passion of mine. I love working with people and advocating for them as well. I pride myself in being a good caregiver always taking into account the needs of others. I 'm am self motivated and don't mind challenges. I believe in being dependable, and having good work ethics. I am not a person who has to be micro managed. Once I know what is expected I honor that and give it my best. I really enjoy working with the elderly and developmental disabled population. Last but not least I believe in treating all people with dignity
