About Sandy

Honestly I fell into it. I started out being a housekeeper at a Nursing Facility in Racine. It evolved from there. What I like is the help and attention you are giving to the patient. And the happiness they get from what you do for them. Giving someone the Heimlich that was choking at dinner. I started working at Lincoln Lutheran of Racine when I was 25. I was a housekeeper for approximately 1 year. I ended up being an Assistant Mananger at an Independent care facility that LIncoln Lutheran opened after I started working there. I worked there for 11 years. My husband was in the Air National Guard, he was called to Active Duty, my children were very young and I decided to leave to stay home with them. I tried baby sitting at home to be home with my son, didn't have the same good feeling about what I was doing. I ended up to private care and housekeeping. I have done this ever since.

    When I was a little girl, in kindergarten, we were asked to write down what we wanted to be when we grew up, my mother just gave me all of those old keepsakes. My little piece of paper said " when I grow up I want to be a social worker, a nurse, or a missionary. I have had the passion for caring for people since I was a little girl. I have spent my adult life doing this. I enjoy being a caregiver because I have been on the other end, the majority of my childhood. I was in the hospital a lot as a child with bad asthma, and my caregivers, always comforted me when my mother was unable to stay the night. I always said that I would pay back all of those caregivers who made me feel special by becoming one of them, and being there for someone who was alone or frightened. My greatest satisfaction is to make someone smile, it fills my heart with joy. My greatest achievement was being a part of the lives of so many different beautiful people, and hearing all of their stories. I was the granddaughter of an elderly man with dementia, I was the sister of a woman with Alzheimer's, I was the girlfriend of a boy who was struck by lightening, and I enjoyed every moment I shared in their moments.
