About Kiantha

I pride myself on having compassion for all individuals and especially the elderly community. I believe in caring for individuals as if they were my loved one, or how I would want to be cared for later in life. I have worked in the healthcare field for over 10 years in various settings. I was attracted to healthcare early in life because I come from a background of nurses. I always enjoyed putting a smile on someone's face and contributing to their quality of life any way I could. As people age they sometimes lose family and friends and their sense of independence. I want to bring them happiness and encouragement while ensuring precise care when working with them. The best thing about being a caregiver is meeting new people and allowing them to feel safe. I enjoy hearing stories about their lives and taking in their wisdom. I feel that my experience over the years as a caregiver has humbled me and made a more well rounded individual. A personal achievement that I'm proud of would be the ability to adapt to a new position and be recognized for my outstanding customer service and work ethic at my current place of employment.
