About Dee

As an experienced LPN for 32 years, I worked in hospital and nursing homes for 15 years, then home health for 15 years in Hemet, California. In 2010 I retired from nursing and moved to Seattle, then to Tacoma. I went back to school in 2015 to receive my Home Health certificate. I have always wanted to be a nurse growing up and received this goal in 1978 by graduating from Seattle Community College. I enjoy working with the elderly very much and hope to find someone who needs my help. I have a lot to give and skills that do not need a license.
