About Laura

I first was introduced to the idea of being a caregiver when I volunteered for a hospice doing administrative work. I liked the idea because I felt it would give me a purpose that I could be proud of... which I am!! I enjoy being a caregiver because I get to help people have a better quality of life and just knowing I helped someone gives me great joy! My strongest quality is that I am an active listener so I am aware of exactly what the client needs. Knowing what they need allows me to do my job effectively.

I am a Navy Veteran. I received the Purple Heart for my efforts in Afghanistan. I've also received multiple Navy medals and achievements while serving in Iraq, Kuwait and here in the states. I have learned to be patient, compassionate, thorough, very dependable, trustworthy, honest and attentive. I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful daughters. Zoey is twelve and Makenna is ten. My husband is still in the Navy. He is a Submarine IDC (Independent Duty Corpsman) and he makes me proud everyday. I love my family and me working as a caregiver makes them proud as much as it makes me proud. I love being able to say I help people for a living.

I was a caregiver for 6 months after I separated from the navy. I worked with 3 very kind ladies in a house. One of the things that enjoyed the most was really feeling like I was continually improving the quality of their lives. There so much that needed to be done that the 12-hour shift just flew by. I take the time to learn clients' personalities and reciprocate what I believe they are looking for. I'm very big on clarification and communication. One of my clients had early onset dementia that was very advanced, one little to no speech, and one was completely wheelchair bound. Despite this these ladies were a pleasure to work with and I effortlessly treated them with the utmost respect & empathy. It was a pleasure to work with these ladies and I diffidently appreciated how excited they would get when I walked through the door. Looking to get back into a career path that allows me to be fulfilled as well as isn't continuous high stress.
