About Gwendolyn

As a child growing up my Grandmother lived with us, and we cared for her in all ways. Early on the passion to care for not only the elderly but the sick and shut in lived in me. My driven love and ability to care has stuck with me. I've currently been an active Certified nurses assistant with over 10 years if experience. Not only have I worked in clinics, hospitals, and LTC facilities; but I've received awards for the best quality of care. I love to make others feel better because in return I'm serving for those who cannot do for themselves.
