I'm a very outgoing and interpersonal caregiver. I've been in the field for nearly 15 years. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago, and I take care of her so caring for others comes naturally for me. I truly love what I do.

What I like about being a Caregiver is the diversity of my clients, everyone has a different story and background. I love to listen about their lives, accomplishments, family and loved ones. It's like watching a Classic tale of another time and these stories become part of my life, parts not to be forgotten. I love to put not only my heart into my work, but my sensitivity, compassion, laughter,attentiveness and honest character as well. I have worked with some challenging cases like Alzheimer's, Cancer patient's, Stroke patient's and other types of illnesses. I am thankful for the opportunity to have worked with and known my patient's, not just as patient's, but we became friends as well, and I was there when they needed me. I have been a CNA/Home Health Aid for several years, currently my license is inactive, but I still retain all the skills necessary to perform an outstanding job for you. I love to be a Caregiver and am thankful The Lord allowed such experiences in my life. I am also thankful that you have the chance to know alittle about myself now, and I'd like you to feel assured that I will do my upmost in all aspects of your care. As a caregiver, I do care about you, and want much happiness for you with an enriched quality of life. I thank you for your consideration, and I hope to hear from you soon, have a wonderful and blessed day.
