About Crystal

Hello, for the past 15yrs I have had the pleasure and opportunity of working in the Healthcare industry. Someone might ask why did you chose this career path? My answer is simple, I know it is my God given purpose to help and serve others. Knowing that I can put a smile on someone's face and help make their life easier, is a very rewarding experience. The most selfless act anyone can do is have empathy and compassion for others. I have enjoyed my job has a phlebotomist but I feel God is leading me to do more and provide my skills to someone else. In conclusion and aside from my current job, I have also had the pleasure of taking care of my 90yr old grandmother. She means a lot to me and I am thankful for her wisdom and compassion for others. She is still a very independent lady and between, balancing her bills, checkbook, cooking, doctor appointments, and keeping medications straight, I strive to find a balance that keeps her happy and comfortable. I look for ways to still help her feel competent.
