About Katrina

Hi my name is Katrina, I am a passionate and caring Certified (HHA/HCA) in the state of Washington since 2016 with references apon request. Along with becoming a HCA i spent the last 10+ yrs getting experience in residential and janitorial cleaning. I love animals, respect people and rules, and am mindful of confidentiality requirements, different cultures, traditions, and respect the wishes of the patient and family. I am trustworthy, hard working, reliable, and professional with emotional stability. I'm a quick learner and adjust quickly to new settings and tasks. I have empathy for the pain and suffering of my clients and family members. I feel compassion in my job and provide comfort when needed without judgement. I am very flexiable with regards to my schedule and responsibilities with each client. I have interpersonal skills and can work well in a variety of situations with different client's needs, along with physical endurance and able to tolerate standing for long periods of time, lifting heavy objects (or people), and performing a number of taxing maneuvers on a daily basis. I have a quick response to situations by always being prepared with problem solving skills and quickly addressing problems as -- or before -- they arise. Good attention to details and can follow directions. Any questions please feel free to message me any time. Thanks for stopping by, and hope to hear from you soon.
