About Shanita

I am a loving, caring and compassionate person and I'm able to adapt to almost any environment. I'm here to expand my growth and knowledge on how to be an even better caregiver. What attracted me to become a caregiver was after I had my son and also by having an older mother. I enjoy taking care of individuals, I'm all for helping anyone that needs help. I'm proud to say I'm attending Norfolk State University, my major is to become a Registered Nurse. I hope that I can be the caregiver that is right for you. Please don't hesitate to contact me at your earliest convenience.

I am a compassionate person, fun-loving, very organized, and tidy. My passion for caregiving started after taking care of my husband who received a double organ transplant. After he recovered, I took a job at a Sentara Nursing home as a housekeeper and eventually a caregiver. I love grooming my patients and making them feel good about their appearance. Playing fun games, dancing, and laughing are my secret treats for my patients. My parents are miles away in Africa and taking care of the elderly gives me satisfaction as if they are my own parents.
