About Karen

I became a CNA shortly after my grandmother passed away and specialized in geriatrics because of the need to treat our elderly with compassion, kindness and to allow them to have as active a life as possible. I also am very humbled by the fact that I am also allowed to take care of people who put their trust in my skill, I have also done palliative care, as well as end of life care. I am most proud of the fact of how I have always attempted to keep up with the latest skills, to pass on what I know to our younger generation, to be able to lend a hand and to always have a smile and kind word for those I work with or have been hired by. Having also been an EMT, it has given me an even greater skill level, one that has taught me how to be calm under pressure and to be able to reassure those when they are in an emergency situation, to know what to say and how to handle any situation I may face.
