About Leslie

I am very compassionate and caring which is why I went into nursing as a career. I prefer to care for the geriatric and/or disabled adult population because I feel there is a lack of qualified professionals who work for this population. Becoming a nurse was my greatest accomplishment only second to being the mother of 3 wonderful children. I enjoy conversations with my patients and the self satisfaction I take away from helping to make someone's life more comfortable.

I am a kind, sweet, respectful, and loving female who once needed assistance with my own daily living activities. When I was in that position, I realized how well I, myself, would do helping others in need. Being a caregiver is such an amazing job. I enjoy getting to know my clients the best. Listening to their past stories. Learning about their families. What I love the most though, are the smiles on their faces knowing there are people who care about them. One thing I am very proud of myself for is entering into the medical field. I have not yet reached my goal but I sure am enjoying the path there.

Certified in CPR PCA certified (Personal Care Aide) I love being a caregiver, I love helping anyone I can. I have helped take care of all of my grand parents and they were thankful enough to have family to care for them in their last days but iv always taken care of people who didnt have that and no one deserves to be alone at the end of life. My goal is to help them enjoy their last days weather its talking, reading, playing games, coloring or just being there to have someone to sit with them. I am now certified as a PCA personal care aide as well as CPR I plan to go to school to further my education so i can also work in nursing homes. I worked with a boy with autism for 8 years as well. He became like my little brother. I dont mind working on either spectrum. As long as i can help make their lives a little easier and put a smile on their face then im doing what i aim to do.
