The Police Academy provided weeks of intensive First Aid & Trauma Response Training. I served 3 years in Patrol as a First Responder for all types of Medical Emergencies, Serious Automobile Accidents, Overdoses & All Criminal Activity. ***I received several commendations while in Patrol and was promoted to Detective after the first 3 years. I was assigned to the Crimes Against Children Division where I conducted dozens of complex investigations involving Child Abuse, Neglect and Crimes of Child Sexual Abuse. ***I also attended & graduated from Weber State University with a Bachelor's Degree Political Science and Social Sciences. ***I was the founding partner of Thurgood Development Company. We Developed & Built 8 major Senior Residential Projects in N. Utah from 1986-2017. I understand & appreciate the needs of seniors especially as it comes to living independently & as safely as possible. I know from direct experience that Seniors & the Disabled very much want to maintain their independence. ***I volunteered and trained 2 days per week for 7 years at Manor Care Nursing Home in S. Ogden, Utah. ***I retired from construction in 2017 but soon found myself wanting the work with Seniors again. I went to work for a Leading In-Home Senior Care firm in SLC.

I grew up taking care of both of my bedridden grandmothers at different times and a job as a caregiver was what I was basically raised to do. On a number of occasions I've thought of my clients as my grandmas and grandpas and do all I can to make them happy, comfortable, and give them the dignity they deserve. I genuinely care for my clients. I engage them in conversation and try to learn how they feel and what they need. I study their medications and look up their effects, symptoms, possible reactions, and compatibility with other medications. This has allowed me to save a client's life a couple of times and watch for client sensitivity to changes in medications. I find the job of caregiver to be very rewarding when my clients tell me how much they look forward to my arrival on shift. One of the most rewarding things I've taken away from my career, apart from helping my clients live as comfortable and happily as I can accommodate, is the collection of stunning and heartwarming recommendation letters I've received from client families. The satisfaction gained from knowing I've done my best and having that recognized so appreciatively by my client's families is immeasurable.
