I love to help people, and make their life easier, and happier! For both the family, and the patient! It gives me great gratification and is something I truly enjoy. I treat my patients with the respect and dignity that they so deserve. I have had the experience of working full time , raising children and dealing with failing health of a parent. I know what it is like to try to juggle it all!! I was a Physical Therapist Assistant for 21 yrs., prior to helping my husband run our business so that I could be a "stay at home Mom" while still working. My goal has always been to keep my patients as ind ependent as possible so they can reside in their own home as long as possible. I have worked in hospitals, Rehabilitation centers, and in Long term care. Besides being a Mom, working in Rehabilitation and working with people has always been my passion and made me the happiest!! I love to garden and read in my spare time when I'm not spending time with my husband and 2 children. Thank you for the opportunity to help make your life happier and easier! ... more
